Ugly buildings

Travel + Leisure has published their list of the world's ugliest buildings. Clearly, this is not a canonical list but New Jersey takes some indirect hits with Princeton's Michael Graves and Princeton graduate C. Y. Lee both desiging buildings on the list. But then T+L sticks it to us with this quote:
“The ugliest buildings are the anonymous ones,” says Christopher Bonanos, who edits architecture criticism at New York magazine. “Even if an experimental, high-profile building doesn’t quite deliver, at least the architect is trying something. A boring building is a warehouse in the middle of New Jersey.”
It wouldn't be so bad if we didn't deserve it.
