Waterfront Hotel is 'Architectural Carbuncle'

The Radisson SAS Waterfront Hotel has been voted the winner of the Carbuncle Cup by the readers of the online magazine Building Design. The announcement was made on the eve of the Stirling Prize and labels the Radisson as the professions choice of least impressive building of the year.

London-based EPR Architects managing director Stuart Lowther said he was ‘extremely disappointed’ by the result. And although the award bears out SAVE's initial concern with the development, this should be seen as aspur to campaigners members of the public alike to make sure that this ignominy is not copied in the rest of the Waterfront Development.
