Have your say on this year’s shortlist
From the nominator: “This horrifically misconceived cruise-liner of a development has docked on Oxford Street and is presently nearing completion. It is simply a graceless, sparkling slug of commercial ‘bling’ which does absolutely nothing for it’s surroundings. The building design handles the site and context very awkwardly, whilst the execution demonstrates the pointlessness of it’s nasty, patterned envelope. One of the worst of the pre-bust design glut.”
