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.

    Until they make a physical connection to the city, and eliminate the urban motorway along the Strand, projects like this will simply waste money.

  • Could do with a wide pedestrian link (bridge/park) to continue chavasse park over the highway. Would be an amazing thing and would act as a proper gateway to the docklands
