Architect behind Alexandra Palace revamp to masterplan Merseyside museum quarter
Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios has won a competition by National Museums Liverpool to draw up a masterplan for the regeneration of its waterfront campus.
The practice saw off 25 other firms which entered, including three who were interviewed by the client – BIG, LDA Architects and MICA.
FCB Studios will create a 10-year plan to upgrade the eighteenth-century dockland area, which contains a handful of museums.
It is working with landscape architect Planit IE, place consultants Fourth Street and Standard Practise, as well as structural and environmental consultant Arup.
The plan will include incorporation of under-utilised buildings, changes to museums, including the Museum of Liverpool and the Mersyside Maritime Museum, and a rethink of grade II-listed Canning Graving Docks.
All elements of the masterplan will be agreed with Historic England and Unesco, as the site occupies a central swathe of Liverpool’s World Heritage Site.
