Haste makes waste! And that's exactly why you must email us with your ugly noms post haste. Toute suite! The rules are simple. The structure must be located in Los Angeles and be at least two stories. Commercial, residential or civic. Excluded are single-family homes (so no pics of your neighbor's McMansion).
To enter, email us one of the following: 1. a picture. 2. web link. 3. Local Live Link. Also, please provide address of the building and a line or two about why the structure is offensive. Entries must be received by midnight March 31, 2007.
We're happy to announce the following individuals have agreed to be judges for this contest:
· Christopher Hawthorne, architecture critic, Los Angeles Times
· Alissa Walker, design critic/writer/blogger, UnBeige and The Architect's Newspaper
· Ryan Losanjealous, editor/writer/bon vivant, Losanjealous
· Lorcan O'Herlihy, principal, LOHA
We hope our panel of judges will be able to reach a consensus in the time allotted. However, in case of a tie or all the judges die, co-editor Marissa will be the final arbiter of ugly.
The winner, announced mid-APRIL, will receive a free dinner for four at Shakey's Pizza AND prominent mention on Curbed LA. Get your ugly on, Curbed readers. And good luck.
