Y'all should come to my city, if you want to see true ugliness.
Hello mother fucker! when you ask a question read also the answer instead of asking another question on an answer who already contain the answer of your next question!
You're in the north? I traveled south to north and it was like someone turned up the ugly dial as I went.

The basket one is fun, but the handles resemble golden arches of McDonalds, as if they were expanding their business to McPicnic.
Re: the Portland Building. I see it all the time, and yes it is ugly from afar - but you don't notice the ugliness of the building as much as you are in awe of Portlandia, the nearly 35 foot statue that looks like it could fall on you at any moment. The sidewalk is goes right under the platform holding her up, and it's amazing to see.

The Portland Building
Letís break out the government-building checklist. Small, boring windows? Check. Humdrum off-white masonry? Yes. Terracotta pilasters and shiny blue glass? That, too. The first three levels of the squat, 15-story municipal-services structure are covered in dark green tiles, adding to the bewildering gaudy-meets-tedious tone.
They forgot to add the ugly ass bows that go around the building. I used to work downtown Portland and had a view of this bldg. from my office. It is actually really ugly. They are right about the horrid blue/green tiles on the bottom level.
I don't think the EMP is all that bad. It's interesting to look at. Plus it's right by the Space Needle so it's just all weird in that area of town.
I love the EMP/Sci-Fi museum. We have a membership to it, and it really is like stepping into another world. Very cool place, with cool architecture.
