"The shortlist for the 2013 Carbuncle Cup, awarded by Building Design magazine, has been unveiled. The annual prize recognises the very worst in modern architecture.

"Among the listed designs is The Premier Inn (above), Lambeth. Built on the site of a neo-Georgian 1930s red-brick building, it is described by its nominator as an 'abysmal, identikit' building. 'It’s hard to imagine a less inviting frontage,' they add.

"The Port Eirias Watersports Centre (above) in Colwyn Bay is also in the reckoning for the gong. It is 'oppressively bland, shaped like a dumpster, and totally insensitive to the beautiful surrounding coast,' according to the magazine."
