When architecture goes bad

A poll has revealed the most hated buildings in Britain (http://society.guardian.co.uk/gall/0,9730,1665558,00.html) , although as one person noted, getting the general public to comment is not an entirely reliable guide to most things. Just look at the number of people who watch and vote in pop idol, eat fast food or vote for certain politicians in certain countries. Need I say more... and when it comes to architecture many people couldn't even name a current architect, let alone comment on a building. However, I guess it is still good to get people thinking and commenting... anyway, its worth a look... to expand your architectural horizons... understanding the rubbish as well as the gold.

And maybe I'll start a record of my own local architectural disasters... after all, part of becoming an architect is being able to mock others.
