Laura Alvarez recently wrote a piece for CityMetric.com about why people feel strong (and often negative) feelings towards new/visually jarring buildings. She notes that the Eiffel Tower in Paris and Frank Lloyd Wright's Guggenheim Museum in New York City had a chorus of jeers when they were first proposed/built, but have become architectural icons since. Not every "ugly" or newfangled building will stand the test of time...but some do, if you give them a chance....
