The Ugliest Building

New, 87 comments

The gentle townsfolk of Bournemouth in the U.K. know how to party: their city council voted to front the $12 million needed to buy and demolish the ugliest building in all the queen's land. The Waterfront Leisure Complex, or "IMAX building" as it's known to locals, won a 2005 poll that asked Britons which building they'd most like to see bite the dust. The ballsy move's inspired The Boston Globe to ask its readers what building they'd like to see torn down. Which leads us, inexorably, to the dizzying, mouth-watering question of the day: what San Francisco building would you like to see torn down! Nominations and salty language below. [Boston]
