Cultural centre plan for Liverpool dock
Baca Architects’ proposals before planners next week
Baca Architects is behind plans to turn a 250-year-old docks in Liverpool into a floating cultural centre.
The London-based practice specialises in water work and has been appointed by the Canal and River Trust to look at transforming South Docks.
Its ideas include a floating waterpark, new bridges and moorings along with a floating sculpture park. City planners are due to rubber stamp them at a committee meeting next week.
Baca director Richard Coutts said: “Unlike other water strategies, the Liverpool South Docks is conceived as a masterplan on water.”
The work would involve revamping a stretch of docks from Canning Dock in the north to Brunswick Dock in the south.
