Have your say on this year’s shortlist

From the nominator: “Its a ‘hum-dinger’ no matter what angle you look at it.”

  • yeah- this is really horrible. I happened to see it the other day. Luckily the new trains on the Metropolitan Line are quite fast, so I didn't have to look at it for long or I might have vomited.

    This is quite tame from Piers. Maybe he is losing his touch

  • It's bad for us all that so many obviously untalented architects who are well-connected, and who everyone professes to love, get along so well. I'm not necessarily saying that CZWG is one of them. On the other hand, I might be. But there are others. I'm sure other readers could MAKE up their own list.

  • The judging panel is not yet confirmed - the judging won't take place until the summer and we have many weeks of nominations still to go. But rest assured we will reveal it when it is.

  • My opinion is that the carbuncle competition is in concept wrong-headed. It encourages cheap shots and is trivial and demeaning to all concerned.

  • I’m with you Gordon. Doctors, lawyers and teachers do not celebrate their failures. If our profession was more concerned with promoting each other’s success rather than shouting about our failures, then perhaps we would be more respected by the construction industry, policy makers and the general public as a whole.
