St. Anne’s Square in Belfast makes shortlist for Carbuncle Cup


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.
