The Anonymous Widower

And The Winner Is!

They announced the winner of the Carbuncle Cup this week and the story is here in the Guardian. Here’s the first paragraph.

Cramped rooms with low ceilings and one small window facing directly on to a brick wall. If you crane your neck, you can just about see the outside world. It could be a description of the cells in Pentonville Prison, but these are the conditions enjoyed just down the road from the Victorian jail in a new student accommodation block for University College London – today announced as winner of the Carbuncle Cup by Building Design magazine, for the worst building of the year.

It might appear to some, that the judges thought the student residence at 465 Caledonian Road was even worse on the inside than the outside.

This is generally unusual, as I think we’ve all stayed in bad looking hotels, where the rooms were excellent.
