You can stare at this strange three towered building for a week and never understand why they call it the Elephant Building. It looks more like an ugly duckling to us.

Thailand continues their quest to have the strangest architecture in the world with the Robot Building. As least this building looks like its title, but they could have made a better choice of robots.

5. CCTV Headquarters, Beijing

This 44-story skyscraper has been nicknamed “Big Boxer Shorts” for its unusual design and appearance. China has built some of the most sensational buildings in the last few years, but this is not one of them.

6. Torre Velasca, Milan, Italy

Some buildings become known as a communities eye-sore. Torre Velasca has become that building in Milan, Italy. Its mushroom style is not a tasty portobello, it is more of a poisonous toadstool blighting the skyline.

7. Kingdom Centre, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

Why would anyone build a skyscraper that looks like a tall bucket with a handle? The odd keyhole design for the Kingdom Centre was added to comply with laws prohibiting occupied floors above a certain height, while still letting it become Saudi Arabia’s tallest building.
