Architect: Makoto Sei Watanabe
Year completed: 1990
Winner of awards such as the ASLA Professional Award, the Gold Prize for Good Design, and the AIJ prize, Makoto Sei Watanabe is a distinguished Japanese architect. Watanabe has designed over a dozen buildings in his 24-year career. However, his first building, the Aoyama Technical College, is the architect's most unfortunate work. The red and silver structure is reminiscent of a robot trying to take over the city. It also made The Telegraph's list of "The World's 30 Ugliest Buildings."
