Liverpool's new Civic Facilities to be complete for European Capital of Culture in 2008 

Work is progressing to transform Liverpool’s King’s Waterfront into a focal point for the city’s European Capital of Culture celebrations in 2008. The new civic buildings will provide a 10,000 seat multipurpose arena, a conference centre incorporating a 1,350 seat auditorium, and an 7,500m2 exhibition facility, supported by a public piazza, 1600 space car park and 96 residential units. The development will have an iconic status, defining Liverpool’s regenerated waterfront with a landmark structure. The architecture therefore expresses the development’s varied functions as a series of visually unified forms, relating to a new public realm rich in art and activity.
