The AJ can exclusively reveal these shots of the soon-to-be-completed Museum of Liverpool on the city’s waterfront
The controversial £68 million X-shaped building next to Liverpool’s famous Three Graces was originally designed by Danish practice 3XN. However, the Danes left the project in late 2007 after falling out with the client, and the scheme has since been delivered by Manchester-based AEW Architects, the former executive architects.
Although the shell of the new building is expected to be complete by the end of March, the museum will not officially open to the public until next year.
3XN explain on their website how the design evolved.
