    Thumbs down Never been better!

    What monstrosities?
    The Pier Head looks better NOW than its ever done.
    As recently as the 1980's, it was a tramps toilet.
    The Liver building aint so pretty.
    People are far too precious about everything in this city, you would think we lived in Venice or Florence the way people go on about out tedious 200 metre long "waterfront".

    I absolutely love the waterfront the way it is now. The contrast in styles, ages and building materials in the architecture makes it a remarkable public open space.

    Standing near the floating bridge area and looking South on a bright, sunny day gives a great vista.

    Default Liverpool and China

    Here comes the yuan

    A city’s bid to revive its fortunes through the local and the global


    AT THE new Museum of Liverpool (above), a sleek limestone affair of Danish design, the city’s Chinese community, which began with an influx of sailors at the start of the 19th century, gets an exhibit to itself. The emphasis seems a little odd, until you consider the city’s regeneration strategy, which rests on a characteristically 21st-century mix of the local and the global. The aim is to use Liverpool’s storied past to attract investment from around the world—and from China in particular.
