Walkie Talkie UK’s Worst Building

Walkie Talkie UK’s Worst Building

London skyscraper, The Walkie Talkie, has won the annual Carbuncle Cup, awarded to a building judged to be the UK’s worst.

In its short history, the 37-storey office tower has melted parked cars and critics have compared its three-storey roof garden, to an airport terminal.

Thomas Lane, who runs the awards, said the carbuncle “crashes into London’s skyline like an unwelcome party guest”.

It gets the Tesco in General Gordon Square in Woolwich off the hook though.  The building won the Carbuncle Cup last year.
