  1. Yikes, that is brutal.

  2. I didn’t think that could possibly be a new build… Oh dear

  3. Horrid.

    Looks like an actual prison block.

    Why would any architect think this is something to be proud of?

  4. Cell Block G.

    G for Geremia.

  5. Damm that neighborhood doesn’t have those incomes.
    Just to funny.,

    There are actually a number of newer buildings in the area that seem to have replaced one-story commercial “taxpayer” buildings. Of course, the Third Ave. El is long gone. Still, one hears of the place too often in the news.

  7. How is it even possible to design a building this ugly?
    I’m no fan of 1950s architecture, but the plain brick look was simply mundane rather than butt ugly like this.

  8. I can’t tell if these architects like Geremia, Caliendo, Badaly are actually really talentless designers or they just don’t care. I don’t know which is worse.

    • There are different categories of architecture offices. One category deals with the practice solely as a business – they get paid to produce a product for a client, and if the client has no interest in design it’s of no concern for anyone involved.

  9. Inspired by NYCHA.
