... and is bug-ugly.

This children's book tells in exhaustive detail, with plenty of photographs, how the Exxon Building in New York City was constructed in the early 1970s. It's useful and interesting.

It's a pity the building itself is of the most brutal architectural school of modernist ugliness.
