New buildings can be a source of great pride or angry revulsion so we at the Ealing Gazette have teamed up with Ealing Civic Society to find readers' best and worst creations from the past year.
A shortlist of six of the finest has been drawn up by the society and will be judged by a panel of architects in the coming weeks.
Mount Carmel School, won last year's People's Award after our readers decided it was the pick of the bunch from 2007.
Now we want you to vote again for your favourite new building from the remaining five, or to nominate your own - and to give us your vote for the construction project which is the biggest new blot on the landscape.
Two schools which made it on to the shortlist of the best buildings this year include the new wing of Twyford C of E High School in Twyford Crescent, Acton, and the rebuilt Grange School.
They are competing against the new Northfields Library in Northfields Avenue, the dramatic extension to Kingsdown Methodist Church, a stone's throw away on the same road, and the iconic landscaping project at Northala Fields in Northolt.

Civic society member Mike Tiley said: "The awards are about looking for the best in new architecture or development in the borough, and encouraging good new projects which will be there for years to come."
To qualify for the awards, buildings or other construction projects have to be less than two years old and must have been in use for at least six months.
