The National Museum will not delay the Cloud

  • Comment

Ed Dorrell's piece on Will Alsop's Cloud (AJ 4.12.03) committed the age-old journalistic sin of presenting only one side of the story, at the expense of accuracy.

National Museums Liverpool is not behind in anything with regard to the timetable for the Fourth Grace. At present we are awaiting confirmation that the Fourth Grace (which needs our land in order to get built) is viable in terms of overall funding, and will meet our physical requirements for housing a world-class museum.

In the meantime, we are working just as hard as other involved parties, and are confident that we can have the museum open in 2008, as long as all else is in place. Indeed, according to the Liverpool Daily Post, the museum is the only part of the scheme which might be ready by 2008, as Liverpoolbased readers of The Architects' Journal will be aware.

David Fleming, director, National Museums Liverpool
