The shortlist has been announced for the Carbuncle Cup, BD’s award for the ugliest building in the UK completed in the last 12 months. Despite a flurry of nominations for buildings in Ireland, only one made the final cut. Designed by WDR & RT Taggart in Belfast, St Anne’s Square was called a “neo-classical, pastiche mess” by one contributor. The £100m leisure, commercial and residential development is in the city’s Cathedral Quarter in a major site of regeneration in Belfast.
