Strata Tower, Elephant and Castle

The Strata tower in Elephant and Castle has made the shortlist of BC Magazine’s Carbuncle Cup, which we wrote about a couple of weeks back:

Six in race for Carbuncle Cup | Features | Building Design:

The Strata tower in Elephant & Castle, by BFLS (formerly Hamiltons) was nominated by The Georgian Group for its “plain visual grotesqueness”.

While a last-minute nomination ensured the inclusion of the “most offensively ugly” Bézier Apartments by TP Bennet near Old Street, forcing out Renzo Piano’s Central St Giles.
