I normally have a little gripe now and again that they don’t make buildings like they used to.  I love the beauty, grandeur and robustness of the Three Graces in Liverpool and I was sceptical about the new modern buildings that have been built around these 3 icons. However, I have grown to love the angles and lines of the new additions, especially the Museum of Liverpool and the Beatles Museum.  So for my Future Tense, I’m moving with the times, accepting the new architecture  and admiring how the new blends with the old. It remains to be seen if the new buildings will be iconic in a couple of hundred years.  I’d put a bet on that the Three Graces will still be there standing strong!

    The angles, and the yin/ yang colour scheme of the new buildings make them arresting. What I love is the contrast between the elaborate old icons and the soaring exuberance of the new buildings, framing and reflecting their predecessors in a most respectful manner.
