Victim of Forgotten HopeForum bystander

There was an article about the most ugly churches in Finland in the newspaper, and I have to say one especially was pretty horrible.
Lutheran Huutoniemi church: [img]http://www.vaasanyt.net/uploads/2/6/6/1/2661208/_5779300_orig.pngimg]
Built in 1963, a disturbing example of concrete brutalism. That building looks ugly anyway, but really, a church designed to look like that? Some suburbs here have similar apartment buildings, they were build in the 1960s and are referred to as "Soviet cube suburbs". While it's not as bad as in the Eastern bloc countries, those areas still look pretty depressing and it's hard to imagine how people thought they look good in the 60s.
Do you have any ugly architecture, perhaps near where you live?
