From the reader email: "I hereby nominate the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels as Los Angeles' ugliest building... Why do I nominate this building? I nominate it because not only does it suffer from aesthetic effrontery, but from utilitarian failure. As architecture, it is modernism at its worst. "Concrete monstrosity" is an apt description."
