Exactly, something sympathetic to the heritage, or a big FU statement.It also fits in with the original buildings in the area such as the titanic and tobacco warehouse . I’d much rather them do that and keep it traditional than lash a load of buildings up with crap cladding on the outside which will look massively dated on 10/15 years time.
Left to me it'd have been a big bare grey concrete brutalist bowl with the Leitch metal work transplanted from Goodison and barbed wire on the dock walls. But all in all I happy with what we are getting.Looks fantastic that.
If you prefer architecture with zero nods to history, get yourself into a 1960's tower block flat. If there are any left.
Dave, you’re too late. The fat lady has sung.It just maddens me when you get a cluless fool like Meis deciding he knows this sort of thing is what we all want. I doubt very much if there'd been a consultation on it it would have had momentum.
Our fans aren't the misty-eyed sentimentalists the club and their mates at the Echo tell us we are.
That pattern to the brickwork looks a mess and adds NOTHING to the stadium aesthetic.
There's a building opposite where I work that has brickwork applied like this, but they made the mad decision to use like a terracotta mortar, which makes the whole thing seem more artificial. You can also see the straight-line gaps between the panels, which totally breaks up the authentic brickwork look.That is actually quite innovative. DFMA on a grand scale. I’m impressed.
No, because that's trying to do what it set out to achieve: a straight redbrick industrial design.
It's gonna be humongous.Wow, that North stand looks miles bigger than I thought it would.
Great pics Tommye
