Liverpool's doing it's thing! Awesome. I really like some of these projects, and the skyline at night looks beautiful.

I think it's great that cities like 'Pool, Leeds, Manchester and Brum are starting to build tall. I wonder in 10 or 20 years time if Birmingham will still be the second city? It'll be nice for London to have some proper competition with another city inside of the UK for once. I have one thing to say though, whichever city it is: BRING. IT. ON!

Observation Tower-Crosby Beach-50m









Quote:
When viewed from the landscape, the Observation Decks will glow like a giant table lamp at night. The skin is intended as a photoluminescent material thus enabling it to glow without the need for artificial lighting. In this way the building becomes seasonal responding to the quantity of light available and stored throughout the year.
Quote:
Passing the visitor centre, the surface of the table top lifts and ‘coils’ into the building, depositing the visitor at 2nd floor level. At this point the cathedral-like quality of the internal volume is revealed, with uninterrupted views up to the lower deck located over 30meters above.
Quote:
The Observation Tower - ‘the Lamp’ - is intended as a dramatic structure breaking the horizontal plane of the table top. The structure, a series of rotating ellipses which slowly diminish in size as one ascends the building, is wrapped in gauze like skin, which reveals the internal structural logic as one nears.A ‘rip’ in the skin at high level signifies the location of the internal observation deck, whilst the external platform is poised at roof level - for those who dare.
Quote:
The Visitor Centre - ‘the Bowl- is the first destination point, intended to function in it’s own right for temporary exhibitions and seminars. The first floor spaces (cafe, restaurant and galleries) benefit from views out towards the ‘Another Place’ installation by Anthony Gormley. The roof to the bowl is also accessible, offering an open air amphitheatre with more intimate views of the Wildlife Reserve.

The observation tower lamp looks more like a vase.
I like the facade and the idea but I don't like the top.

Separated by Mersey River... Is Wirral Waters still included in Liverpool's territory?
