The Lincoln Plaza residential complex near Canary Wharf has been named Britain’s ugliest building in the annual Carbuncle Cup.
Judges from the architectural magazine Building Design described the two 31-storey towers as “a hideous melange of materials, forms and colours.”
The magazine’s editor Thomas Lane described it as “the worst building amongst a swathe of mediocrity” in the South Quay area.
Galliard Homes said its “scheme sold out to buyers, so clearly the project is liked by the purchasers”.
