Design for Home's David Birkbeck has compiled a picture gallery of poorly designed UK housing. Prepare to be depressed …
The author of Building for Life, David Birkbeck, has made a pastime out of photographing badly-designed new homes. This is but a small sample of his collection, picked by him to identify some of the shortcomings of modern housing. The rest of the scheme may be great – but even the best buildings have their flaws.
The names in this motley crew have been removed to protect the guilty parties, but all of these are schemes which have been built in the last 10 years. A number of them have even received support from Cabe - ignored to various degrees by the builders.
