Danes beat stars to replace Alsop's blob

  • Comment

The AJ can exclusively reveal the images of the proposed Museum of Liverpool, which could be built on the city's controversial Fourth Grace site. Dreamed up by Danish architect 3XNielsen (3XN), the concept is the latest attempt at designing an 'international visitor destination' on the waterfront following the collapse of Will Alsop's 'Cloud' scheme in July.

The Copenhagen-based firm was chosen by National Museums Liverpool (NML) in December, following interviews with a number of world-class architects including Zaha Hadid, David Chipperfield and Daniel Libeskind. Rumoured to cost about £65 million, the project still needs financial backing.

However, NML is hoping to secure £5 million of Objective One funding from the Northwest Development Agency and a final decision is expected on 27 January.
