I'm a big fan of the Pompidou, though I'm sure it has its detractors.
The Daily Planet Building.

That Batman looking building in Nashville
I love the Disney Concert Hall in downtown L.A.

Literally every single photo posted in this thread is of an ugly building.
the Grand Palais
the Woolworth Building
These are beautiful buildings.They are the ones still standing. Many of the movie palaces built in early 20th century are among my favorites, too.
They are such beautiful buildings (esp. Beekman Place), R7, that they deserve pictures.
the Woolworth Building, celebrating its centennial next week!!

I wonder what it smells like, in real life?

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/3b/Chrysler_building-_top.jpg Those Frank Gehry buildings like the Lillian Disney Hall always look like they were built to propitiate Cthulhu.
Sydney Opera House. It looks great in the daytime and they can do some great lighting effects at night.
http://www.destination360.com/australia-south-pacific/australia/images/s/australia-sydney-opera-house.jpg Pompidoooooo was a huge controversy when it was built...all the piping on the outside...those pictures don't really show...and they demolished great buildings for it. I love modern architecture but up close and when you are there it really is hideous...
The Pompidou is just a gimmick that has turned into kitsch. The rationale of the guts-on-the-outside silliness is betrayed by the difficulties of the interior.
France should wait 10 more years and then quietly demolish it. If allowed to stand it will be a permanent stain on Paris, like bird shit allowed to remain on the tableware when dining al fresco.
Milwaukee Art Museum by Calatrava
http://www.factmonster.com/us/history/milwaukee-art-museum.html The Milwaukee Art Museum annoys me because the fancy bit is just the entrance.'
De Waag, Amsterdam - the center of my spiritual universe
Almost all of Oscar Niemeyer: Copan, National Congress, St Francis Church, Niteroi Art Museum
