U.K.’s ugliest buildings
The Carbuncle Cup shortlist was announced a couple of days ago and the following are their latest picks for the Worst Architectural Eyesores in the U.K.
Am I crazy for not thinking these are that bad? I mean, at least these have some architectural vision. Sure, not everyone’s cup of tea, but I’ve seen a lot worst driving through soulless industrial parks in Milton Keynes or sitting on the bus, passing housing estates near Finsbury Park. What do you think?
Here are the top six (in no particular order):
3. Cutty Sark renovation, London
4. Shard End Library, Birmingham
5. Firepool Lock Housing, Taunton

Wow! I haven’t seen that – it’s truly awesome! Good to see you here again! Hope you’re doing well!
Yeah, not bad, thanks. 🙂
