One web site does actually have it listed as number nine of the ten ugliest buildings in America.

I've been meaning to photograph it for a long time. Today, while having a flowmaster muffler put on my Ranger to increase gas mileage, the architectural wonder was just across the parking lot from me, so I finally snapped it.

I wonder if the investor and architect were thinking: "If you build it, they will come." ...?

It almost hurts to look at it. [:-weepn]

Yeah, buildings that are inspired by baked potatoes wrapped in aluminum foil are probably starting out with a lot of strikes against them.

Actually, if it is really inspired by a baked potato, I wonder if it is an unfinished project and they decided not to finish the potato? [:D]

I've always considered Paul Allen's Experience Music Project museum in Seattle to be the ugliest building on the planet.
