The Bath Building: Ugliest In Raleigh



This is the Bath Building. I’m not sure what state business or research takes place here, but it is pretty dreadful looking from the outside. If it had more windows then it would probably blend in with the rest of the bland state government buildings around it.
What do you think is the ugliest building in Raleigh?

UPDATE: KarlĀ has provided the following photo of the bath building when it was new in 1972:
