Websites that make me say 'No!'

There's some discussion at butterpaper about architectural websites, and it threw up two examples here and here of exactly the kind of web sites for which I desperately hunt for the 'Back' button -- sites which for me are the electronic equivalent of Te Papa. When entering either a website or a building, I like to find where it leads me; sites like these two and buildings like Te Papa lead me straight in, and then straight back outside again.

No disrespect to either architect or model-maker, who for all I know may be great, but their sites don't make me want to stick around to find out. Sites like these two are very common amongst architects, perhaps part of the reason why my own site is so defiantly low-tech.

Yup, absolutely. A complete turnoff, and for that reason quiet amateurish.
