London Barbican, "one of the wonders of the modern world" according to the Queen

 The Barbican Centre, topped a poll for London's most ugliest building according to a report on the BBC website:

When Her Majesty opened the building in 1982 she declared it one of the wonders of the modern world - indeed. Perhaps this explains why Prince Charles is so against Modern architecture, it's just an age old case of rebelling against one's parents.

The top ten list was as follows:

1. Barbican Centre
2. BT Communications Tower
3. Millennium Dome
4. Centre Point Tower
5. Elephant and Castle Shopping
6. Euston Station
7. Royal Free Hospital
8. M16 Building
9. St. Georges Wharf
10. Postal Sorting Office, Rathbone Place, W1
