"Whoever allowed these glass monstrosities to be built should be hanged for treason by the City of London!" Can't Boris see how awful these look?

That newest building to the right is awful, its out of balance and looks like a lump hanging in the air. I don't know why they don't put all the ugly new buildings over at Canary Wharf. London use to lead the way now it tries to mimic Dallas and Dubai.

Pity they didn't make a rule that no buildings in the city should be higher than St Paul's.

"It has singed shopfronts, melted cars and caused great gusts of wind to sweep pedestrians off their feet. Now the Walkie Talkie tower, the bulbous comedy villain of London’s skyline, has been bestowed with the Carbuncle Cup by Building Design (BD) magazine for the worst building of the year."

"It looms thuggishly over its low-rise neighbours like a broad-shouldered banker in a cheap pinstriped suit."

"From further east, its silhouette is reminiscent of a sanitary towel, flapping behind Tower Bridge. The headquarters of the Royal Institute of Town Planners stands two streets away. “It’s a daily reminder,” sighs one employee, “never to let such a planning disaster ever happen again.”

“It is a challenge finding anyone who has something positive to say about this building,” says Carbuncle Cup jury chair and BD editor Thomas Lane. “The result is Londoners now have to suffer views of this bloated carbuncle crashing into London’s historic skyline like an unwelcome guest at a party from miles away.”
