Ugliest building?

My vote goes to *any* of the combined KFC/Pizza Hut/Tac Bell/whatever else buildings.

I like Michael Graves, but I've never been a fan of the Portland Public Service Building.

I wrote about this hideous house in Hancock Park that I saw last summer. I have since found out that it is owned by a minor rapper.


I know that house too! Perk is right... it was featured on some reality TV program that I saw a few months ago. I don't even know the name of the show-- I was just flipping by and when I saw the house, I was so overwhelmed by its hideousness, I couldn't seem to change the channel.

The program revolved around this professional butler interviewing for a new job with several different potential (and freaky) employers-- and the rapper that owns that house ended up hiring the butler. The rapper had two little white dogs (maltese?) that were dyed hot pink and neon orange. The bottom of his pool was covered with a huge tile mosaic featuring his own mug. Most delightful.
