Missing in action

Manchester-based AEW has admitted that the Museum of Liverpool job, which it took over from ousted Danes 3XN at the end of last year, will be ‘a challenge’.

But if the practice thought that was a tough task, it has just found itself in an even tighter spot on one of its smaller schemes. The question facing the firm is: ‘How do you revamp a building that has suddenly disappeared?’

According to Astragal’s sources, AEW returned after a hearty Christmas and New Year break to the site of a proposed refurbishment project, only to find that the entire steel-framed building had been stolen. Posters have been put up in the area and there is a reward on offer for its safe recovery.
