Museum of Liverpool

I was sad to see that the new Museum of Liverpool was nominated for this years Carbuncle cup.  I have to agree that it really isn't in keeping with the rest of the waterfront but you get a marvellous view of the Three Graces from the large window and inside it is amazing.  I suppose it will grow on me as the years pass and we get used to it.

At least the Museum doesn't obscure the view from the Mersey like the winner of the 2009 Carbuncle cup which I agree is ugly.

Which is a shame because the Pier Head is looking really nice now after years of neglect.

What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT475.
The image can be seen at wahooart.com who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
