Is some of that glass frosted? It looks good - pretty trippy though.

Agreed. Certainly the most interesting.

Glazing is the architectural term referring to all glass that goes on a building for windows, etc.... consider it similar to "cladding" which refers to the finish of the building. The person who cuts, selects and installs the glass is called a "Glazier". Glazing applies to houses, condos and office towers. It is not necessarily a curtain wall, but can also be done with spandrel and individual glass panels.

Man ... that area in and around Albert Docks is truly outstanding. Good to see some world class developments in that region.

@ Dleung- No mate its by 3XN (Nielsen Architects) and is the new Liverpool museum

And the two lads from Toronto thanks for the nice comments, its a highly sensitive area that with it being so close to the 3 graces (Liver building, Cunard building and Port of Liverpool building). Some like the new blocks some don't, I like them though.

Lived in Milton as a youngster Was to young to remember though
