The UK's most hated buildings revealed

Britain is full of spectacular buildings. From Hampton Court Palace to The Eden Project, our tiny island is crammed with stunning architecture on which to feast your eyes.

However there is the rare exception that slips through the net. A building so badly designed and poorly executed that its ugliness is a cause of marvel. 

With this in mind, Gizmodo decided to put together a list of the most hated buildings in the UK, and on the whole we have to agree with their choices.

As part of the Gizmodo Retrospective Planning Board (not an actual real thing, sorry Gizmodo), they asked their readers to state which structures they hated most in the UK and from this they created a list of 11. 

Here, we've created a gallery of all the different erections they thought needed to be torn down and why they are so unloved.

Do you agree or are there any other buildings you think deserve to be in the list? Tell us in the comments below.
