This guy (forgot his name) gave us a presentation on a very interesting project, if I am not mistaken he did mention that he worked (or is it work, not sure if he still does) for Will Alsop. He gave us a super long presentation on this grandiose plans to revive the Middlehaven docks and the redundant waterfront with a total investment of £200m, this grand project believed to be able to generate 1,000 new jobs together with hundreds of shops, stylish bars, cafés and restaurants and a luxury hotel.
The architect for the project is non other than Will Alsop Architect, he is a British architect based in London. He is responsible for several distinctive and controversial modernist buildings, most in the United Kingdom. Alsop’s buildings are usually distinguished by their vibrant use of bright colour and unusual forms. So unique is the architecture that they even propose a gigantic teddy bear for this middlehaven project.
