What's The Ugliest New Building In London?

1207_strata.jpg Building Design magazine's annual Carbuncle Cup, a light-hearted yet fiercely contested award that aims to highlight and celebrate (or perhaps commiserate) the most "fiendishly ugly" building completed in Britain over the past year, is currently taking nominations from the public. While it's a country-wide vote, London is thus far well represented among the more offensive erections: Strata, Nido Spitalfields, St George Wharf, Central St Giles, and the Park Plaza hotel at Westminster Bridge have all been nominated. The suggestions will be whittled down to a shortlist later in the month, but if your eyes are being assaulted by a monstrous carbuncle that has finished in the past year, send your nomination (including a photograph and brief description of why it is so offensive) to bdonline -at- ubm.com before July 22nd.
