The People's Property Award concluded last night. Here are ten of my thoughts on the buildings that made the final shortlist.
City of Manchester Stadium - One of the better new stadiums. Lacks atmosphere on match days.
Hilton Tower - A grand structure, but possibly a missed opportunity.
Imperial War Museum North - Awesome, but pretentious.
The Jerwood Centre Grasmere, for the Wordsworth Trust - Beautiful. I love slate.
Blackburn Station and Transport Interchange - It's a roof.
National Football Museum, Preston - externally horrible, but the venue is a treasure.
Aintree - Breathtaking from all angles. A worthy winner.
Jaguar House, Chester Zoo - Lovely building, but still just an animal house,
Kingsmead School - never seen it.
FACT Centre - Great building, great asset to Liverpool
