Carbuncle Cup nomination — Cutty Sark renovation by Grimshaw Architects
Have your say on this year’s shortlist
From the nominator:
“What should have looked like this…
…has ended up looking like this!”
“Someone appears to have stolen the roof from the British Museum and dropped the Cutty Sark on top of it. If the budget didn’t stretch to detail the glazing as shown in the original 3D image, it should have been scrapped, why is there need for the glass? There wasn’t glass before, why not make the dry dock accessible to the public and open to the elements, it could have been an amazing public space! A serious missed opportunity!”
