Rogers to replace Alsop in Liverpool

The Richard Rogers Partnership could be given a surprise second chance to design a new building for Liverpool's controversial Fourth Grace site.

Rogers was originally shortlisted for the competition to draw up proposals for an iconic building on the waterfront (AJ 15.8.02). However, he was pipped to the post by Will Alsop's 'Cloud' project.

But following the collapse of the Alsop scheme (AJ 22.7.04), the door seems to be opening for the partnership. A source close to local regeneration agency Liverpool Vision has admitted that developer Capital & Provident has already approached Rogers about building a new scheme.

It remains unclear whether the project would incorporate a new Museum of Liverpool and, even if the scheme did get the go-ahead, it would be unlikely to open in time for Liverpool's year as European Capital of Culture in 2008.
