Following National Museum Liverpool’s announcement in January 2021 about ambitions to transform the waterfront landscape, the placemaking competition  offers an exceptional opportunity to find a multi-disciplinary team to do just that.

The competition will be managed by Colander Associates on behalf of NML and will be supported by £120,000 of funding from the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, as part of the Race Equality Programme launched by Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram last year.

Spanning the area between the Royal Albert Dock and Mann Island, the transformation project will take in key landmarks including the creation of pedestrian links to the Canning Dock while also bringing life to multiple buildings within the area as part of NML’s 10-year masterplan of transformation of the waterfront. Poised to become a cultural anchor for Liverpool and aiming to play a significant role in the post Covid-19 regeneration project for the region, it will create a dynamic environment for the benefit of the museums, our communities, visitors, and employees of the many business’ in the area and the city.
