Architecture Week 2007
Architecture Week was your opportunity to find out all about buildings and architecture in your area.
Here at BBC Kent, we're a nosy bunch. So when the people behind Architecture Week suggested not one but five buildings we could have exclusive access to for a series of special reports, we jumped at the chance.
We asked The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) to help us find Kent's most interesting building. Now, we know there are hundred of interesting buildings in the county, so we had to narrow it down to ones completed in the last few years.
RIBA suggested one residential building (an ultra-modern house conversion in Sandgate), a workplace, (the Marlowe Academy school in Ramsgate), a modern building, (a rubber-clad beach house in Dungeness), a historical building, (Ightham Mote) and a public building (the Romney Marsh Visitor Centre).
All the buildings are unusual, quirky and worthy of the attention we're lavishing on them.
They are so different, we could never begin to compare them to each other. Instead, buildings were chosen on a variety of criteria, including how well it fits into its environment, the materials used, whether it is suitable for its specific use and whether it will still tick all those boxes in a few years time.
Now it's your chance to choose which is the most interesting of them all.
Five Radio Kent presenters visited the buildings, and revealed why they think their building is the best.

We asked you to vote for your favouite and here are the results:
