The Portland Tribune recently did a cover story on the best and worst of Portland's architecture. The Wells Fargo Center (at right, above), which is the tallest building in Oregon (546 feet, 41 stories), was identified as the ugliest building in the city. The 1000 Broadway Building (above, center)—derisively known as the "Ban Roll-on Building"—was third on the same list.
