      Edinburgh, United Kingdom

This ugly building, despite its status as an 'good' example of the “Brutalist” architecture of the 60s, needs to be removed since it is a blot on the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Edinburgh City Council
Ensure they demolish Argyle House

      Visited Edinburgh recently and could not believe that such a disgustingly ugly building was ever allowed to be built, obscuring views of the castle.

      This may be a 'Good' example of 'Brutailist' architecture (If there is such a thing!!!!) but how can it be allowed to destroy any view of or from the Castle.

      'A brutalist monstrosity' sums it up perfectly. To make it worse, I get an eyeful of it every morning when I draw my bedroom curtains!

      I love Edinburgh but this building does somewhat spoil it.
