Longaberger Home Office, Newark, Ohio is considered as the first World's Ugliest Building.


The Ugly Truth:
True, the company purveys handcrafted baskets. And founder Dave Longabergerís dream headquarters was a replica of his favorite basket. But hey, Crate & Barrel employees donít schedule meetings in a 10-story sofa.

Hey, I think some of Frank Lloyd Wright's buildings would qualify for an ugly building contest. I walked into a customer's home once and asked, "is this an FLW building" and she said, "Yes, how did you know?" I told her, "Because it does NOT have a single square corner in the house."

You ever see the one at Falling waters? I get woozy looking down. And, too shallow inside for me, too enclosed.

You mean the one that was falling apart and needed millions of dollars in repairs?

Oh, yeah that one HJ. It has or had at least from I know, a real leaking problem, it was nicknamed, the bucket house or something like that. It had a real mold problem, too. I hate mold. It had tons of buckets sitting around. I honestly, didn't think too much of the house. I really did not like it. The waterfall outside is beautiful though. You would love that. How nice it must be to wake up each morning to hearing & seeing that, that was nice. The house itself sucked. I didn't like the low ceilings at all, and didn't like the shape of the rooms either, I saw nothing of beauty in it. Just a whole bunch of concrete and what is so great about that. I like colors, character in woodwork, designs of warmth, something that says, " someone lives here" and you want to stay. I wanted to get out, lol.

That's a great point about FLW! Architecturally speaking, he's had many unique ideas. But does that make for comfortable living?
