Practice founding director will champion good design across city region

AHMM founding director Paul Monaghan has been appointed Liverpool City Region’s first design champion, tasked with bolstering the “quality and attractiveness” of neighbourhoods across Merseyside.

RIBA president Ben Derbyshire saluted city-region mayor Steve Rotheram’s decision to hire Monaghan, which he said had followed work to develop design initiatives with RIBA North West.

Monaghan, who is originally from Liverpool’s West Derby suburb, said it was an “enormous honour” to take on the role, which will involve him “kick starting a conversation about good design” across the region.
