Architecture tends to bring out strong emotions in people. A building might have too many or too few windows for someone’s taste. The shape is unique or too boxy. Other times, the color might seem dull or too bright. But does that make a building ugly?
Business Insider asked its readers to share which buildings they thought were the ugliest in every state. In Texas, that distinction fell to San Antonio’s Alamodome.
The venue, which turns 25 in 2018, has hosted a wide variety of events, including graduations, boat shows, large concerts, Monster Jam, as well as soccer, football, and basketball games. The stadium currently serves as the home for The University of Texas at San Antonio football and the Valero Alamo Bowl.
The most recognizable features of the Alamodome are the pillars and suspension cables on the four corners. Inside, the seating is not a true bowl in the higher levels as the corners of the building are cut out for large stairways behind curved glass.
According to one Business Insider reader, the Alamodome’s features make the building “look like a dead armadillo.” We’ll let you be the judge.
