Future City Exhibition and Dragon’s Den round up
We’ve come to the end of our third and final exhibition in the Hidden Liverpool series ‘Future City’, an exhibition that took a look at the empty spaces around the city and offered proposals from Year 12 & 13 students of Merseyside Schools and LJMU architecture students on how the buildings could be utilised.
We’ve seen models worked on with volunteer architects from the PLACED team featuring the likes of the Welsh Church in Toxteth and The Lyceum on Bold Street. Over 870 people attended the exhibition at the Albert Dock, and many contributed to our ‘ideas wall’; which was full of great ideas for re-using the empty buildings. We do hope you enjoyed the exhibition and a big thank you to all the architects, schools, students and volunteers involved who helped make it happen!

We also had a great day with our ‘Dragon’s Den’ panel of Judges choosing overall winners Holly Lodge for their proposal on the Welsh Church, and the prize for ‘Best Business Case’ awarded to Belvedere Academy for their plans for Toxteth Reservoir. Special mentions were also given to Michael Evans of Cardinal Heenan for his proposal on the Welsh Church and David Grant of King David School for his work on The Lyceum, for exceptional solo proposals. We’d like to say well done to all involved for their excellent hard work, and commitment and a special thank you to our judges, for making their decision!
