Cue minor celeb ripping open glittery envelope.
The Strata Tower at the Elephant & Castle (inner South London) , by BFLS (formerly Hamiltons) nominated by The Georgian Group for its 'plain visual grotesqueness'. It must be said that the Strata Tower (above) does indeed look pretty damn nasty. Weirdly, it looks like a Phillishave electric razor. Is this the most bizarre piece of subliminal advertising yet?
Not to be outdone, Birmingham made the shortlist with The Cube by Make Architects - supposedly a 'tribute' to the city's Jewellery Quarter. Huh?
The first three above are all very urban and private sector developments but finally, here is a piece of municipal silliness, East Ayrshire Council’s Robert Burns Memorial Centre. If it had been built a couple of hundred years earlier, it would have been described as a folly.
I mentioned Daleks above, here is the Radio Times (that's the BBC programme listings magazine overseas persons) Vote Dalek cover. It was inspired by the 2005 General Election and a new series of Doctor Who arriving at the same time. It has been voted the best magazine cover ever. Vote Dalek? Maybe we unwittingly did.
