Federation Square (also colloquially known as Fed Square) is a civic centre and cultural precinct in the city of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It was opened in 2002.
It is a mixed-use development covering an area of 3.2 hectares and centred around two major public spaces: open squares (St. Paul's Court and The Square) and one covered (The Atrium), built on top of a concrete deck above busy railway lines. It is located at intersection between Flinders Street and Swanston Street/St Kilda Road in Melbourne's Central Business District, and is adjacent to Melbourne's busiest railway station, Flinders Street Station.
It is Victoria’s second most popular tourist attraction, with over 9 million visits in 2011. It is sometimes considered to be one of the world's ugliest buildings or tourist attractions.

I do not think there is a competition about the most ugly place or monument - but yet, I find this big iron structure covering the square, intriguing and has some beauty. Modern art-work, with white facade over the other side of the street, mingled nicely from the chosen POV.
Fine clarity and light management.
