In a bizarre incident, a skyscraper in London won the Carbinkle Cup award, which is presented annually to the worst architectural design, after sunlight reflected on its roof melted parts of a Jaguar parked in the street.
The worst building, a 37-storey building in London’s financial district, is named “20 Finch Street,” called the Walkie Talkie, because of its curved shape, but after a car meltdown in 2013 carried a new nickname, “Walkie.” Scorchi “or incendiary device, according to the site” Arab “.
The Carbinkle Cup, organized by Business Design magazine, is judged by a panel of architects that takes into account comments from readers. This year’s award went to Woki Scorchi by consensus.
Among the Committee’s observations is that the building, whose upper floors seem larger than its base because of its unusual design, does not please the viewers, and there is a problem with the concave southern façade, which reflected intensely sunlight, which led to the reflection of the side mirror and part of the roof and the brand of a car Jaguar was standing below the skyscraper.
The Carbinkle Cup prize began in 2006 as a joke in the face of the prestigious Stirling Prize, awarded to the best architects.
