Connecting Creatives

Two stances at opposite ends of commercialisation, power and community empowerment, straddle repelling routes that run through Liverpool’s Creative District. The powerhouses of the business realm line primary pedestrian routes whilst the creative, warehouse dwellers of the back streets morph themselves into every affordable gap available. The commercial giant and the creative learn to live, react and counteract each other, acting out their differences in the public realm that separates them. The visitor becomes the audience to an ever changing backdrop and is taken on a journey through the site which connects Liverpool’s already established districts.

Looking to:

  • • Utilise the existing
  • • Build on what’s there
  • • Control investments
  • • Develop the site as a key node in Liverpool’s Pedestrian Navigational Network
