Building products and hardware solutions company Buildworld has published its new list of “The Top 10 Eyesore Buildings in the World” as of 2023. To gauge public opinion, it uses a sentiment analysis tool called HuggingFace which analyses the percentage of tweets that were negative towards landmark buildings around the world.

With 42.07% of tweets registering as negative, The Scottish Parliament Building in Edinburgh was found to be the ugliest building in the world according to Twitter users. The post-modern campus is described as an “indecipherable jumble of forms” with frequent maintenance issues blamed on its architecture and no satisfying viewing angles. J. Edgar Hoover Building, the headquarters for the FBI, comes in a close second. In 1965, it was the most expensive government building ever in the U.S. Sentiment around its controversial design, featuring an open-air, trapezoidal courtyard and bronze-tinted windows set in a concrete frame, has gradually soured over the years.

Other highlights include Ryugyong Hotel, otherwise known as the “Hotel of Doom” located in the North Korean capital of Pyongyang,” and the fabric-roofed Denver International Airport which has been subject to a number of conspiracy theories over the years pointing to the Freemasons and Illuminati due in part to its gargoyle artworks, dedications stones containing time capsules for “the people of Colorado in 2094,” and rumors of underground bunkers.

Take a look at the full top 10 list below. More details can be found on the Buildworld website.

  1. Scottish Parliament Building – Edinburgh, Scotland
  2. J. Edgar Hoover Building – Washington D.C., USA
  3. Newport Station – Newport, Wales
  4. Boston City Hall – Boston, USA
