Liverpool Architecture

The city is famous (apart from The Beatles and Liverpool FC!) for historic architecture such as the Catholic and Anglican Cathedrals, and for the Three Graces. More recently it has witnessed the controversial Fourth Grace debate as first Will Alsop then Broadway Malyan and 3 x Nielsen try and add a building at this key Merseyside site. Famous architects that achieved major architecture works here include CR Cockerell and Gilbert Scott. Liverpool was European City of Architecture in 2008.
