Ferry Cross The Mersey

Hat-tip to Evan Smythe for this timely post:

The spanking new Museum of Liverpool, designed by 3XN Architects of the Netherlands and Manchester-based AEW group, opens today. The exciting building establishes a nexus that naturally connects the city and harbor.

Located on the River Mersey, the low-slung dramatic structure manages to artfully blend into Liverpool’s historic cityscape. The brilliant design is made-up of intersecting forms based loosely on the old cargo ships that once covered the waterfront along the Mersey.
