New, 2 comments

Rafael Viñoly's Walkie-Talkie building in London has taken the 2015 Carbuncle Cup—a competition to name the worst building in the United Kingdom—in a landslide of epic proportions. "BD received multiple nominations for the Walkie Talkie with many readers saying there was no point in continuing to run new nominations as the Walkie Talkie was bound to win," writes BDOnline, the publication that runs the contest. "The judges' decision to award the Carbuncle Cup to the Walkie Talkie was unanimous." The building has become infamous for its unique shape, which generates car-melting heat beams when the suns hits it and has also created wind tunnels that have knocked pedestrians off their feet.
