No color is ugly , if you think so it is proberly not the single color that's in your mind , as you can't point out a specific color and say 'that color is ugly.
With music it is not the tone but the pattern of tones and in today's architecture we se very few 'tones , but simple forms that make you 'se the intire structure in primitive forms and very few details.

Beauty is one expression , ofcaurse a structure with many details will challance your mind, but you will have an instant feeling call it music or architecture , it all will be in your mind and you even add a taste.

Maby you are among those that will remember a color having a sound or even a smell, ----- as child a few will remember situations where a cirtain color would make you think about a cirtain sound and even smell, but talking about music and architecture you shuld remember that the harmony is about math, the tones double or halve and if they do not you will hear it instantly. ------- Like when a string on a violin break in the middle of a concert or somone slam a door.

So when harmony is order, and you ask simple ------ you need patterns ,patterns in terms of structure creating the background and patterns in details being the theme.

Much of today's architecture is like Pop-music. Uninspired surface attitude leaving humans alone in an inviriment where arears are left to the expression of avaible building elements as if detail is banned.
Like supermarked music or Pop music this leave one single impression and a simple attitude.
