Even London’s most hated building can look beautiful at sunset

The Guardian’s arts blog is currently displaying my recent post about the ugliest buildings in Britain, which itself is pegged around a piece from Gridskipper, about the most hated buildings in the capital. Its all according to some of the city’s most promising architects and there’s a fine selection of bitchiness and prejudice as you might expect, but the most surprising thing is how many of them seem to loath St George Wharf, a gargantuan morass of yuppie flats beside Vauxhall Bridge.

I’ve always disliked this building. Though respect to Jez M (who took the image above right) for making such an ostentatious and overbearing blight on the river, look attractive for once.
