It's grim, overcrowded, subterranean and already a front-runner among buildings the public hate.
New Street Station has already been nominated in a campaign launched just yesterday in which people are being asked to put forward buildings or places they would like to see bulldozed.
The Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE), which is running the campaign to highlight bad design, wants the public to nominate buildings, streets or spaces that depress them or which they think are failures.
CABE director of policy Matt Bell said there were huge costs to bad design that went beyond whether a building was ugly or not.
"For example, if you look at street design, we've all got an everyday experience of it being wrong: where people jump railings, where there's a lack of pavement, where people walk around the railings."
He said people were being asked to nominate places which were examples of designs that do not work, which would then go on display as part of the campaign to tackle bad design.
New Street Station is among the places already nominated, because people cannot find their way around it and do not feel safe or encouraged to interact with other people there, he said.
Other early nominations include the pedestrian area at the bottom of London's Centre Point and Liverpool's Rocket flyover.
The move is part of a campaign calling on the Government to address the social, economic and environmental costs of bad design.
The commission, which advises the Government on architecture and urban design, said bad design was not just about aesthetics, but about buildings and spaces which do not work, cannot be maintained and waste money because they have to be replaced sooner than they should.
CABE chief executive Richard Simmons said: "For years we have been sharing evidence about the benefits of good design, yet some decision-makers still fail to get the point.
"That's why we decided to look at the flip side - the cost of bad design.
"This is about what happens when we create places where you don't want to walk, where you can't find your way around, where you don't feel safe and which limit your chances of engaging with other people."
The campaign will be accompanied by a publication in which architecture and planning experts highlight what happens when buildings and spaces go wrong.
In response to the commission's campaign, the Local Government Association said councils were determined to create well-designed public spaces and buildings.
Chairman of the Local Government Association environment board David Sparks said: "Local authorities are determined to revitalise our town centres and create new homes and neighbourhoods that are well designed, attractive, safe and vibrant - communities with a sense of place where people really want to live and build communities."
He added: "Many of the buildings that are now being attacked as badly designed were once applauded by architects and others as being at the cutting edge civilisation."
The Department for Communities and Local Government welcomed CABE's bid to raise design standards, and said its planning policy meant local authorities could avoid the undoubted mistakes of previous decades by demanding high quality designs.
