    They thought it too high and would overpower the three graces. It was also considered not different enough. That is the case with the tower. The ship shaped building is something else though. Also you have to view these buildings from ground levels as that is where people view them from. Some look great from the air, but at ground level not good at all. At ground level, would you see the ship shape of the building? Would it be obvious? Probably not. Many buildings look great as models look at the 1960s crap we were served up. They do look good from the air though.

    A great iconic new building in Liverpool the Brunswick Tower would encourage more high quality iconic proposals. The current talls and those being built and to be built are very forgettable.

    This picture really shows the levels of dock filling at Kings and Queens Docks- the removal of the water is really apparent.

    We noticed on the boat trip on Saturday how there is an imbalance in the skyline when viewed from the river- all the newer, taller stuff to the north, and nothing comparable to the south.
