Have your say on this year’s shortlist
From the nominator: ”The Bomber Command memorial cries out for its Carbuncle Award. Even if it were a fraction of its (gargantuan) size it would be the wrong design in the wrong place. It’s an insult, to London’s streetscape and to the hapless Royal Park on which it has landed, apparently from another planet. It’s badly articulated, crudely detailed and monstrous in scale. But why and how valid objections were discounted at the planning stage is a matter for deep concern, with ramifications going well beyond a prize for bad architecture.”
