Tate Liverpool has announced that it is seeking tenders from architects to work with the gallery to achieve a major reimagining of its landmark gallery on Royal Albert Dock Liverpool.
When Tate Liverpool opened in 1988 it was a pioneer for arts-led regeneration; a gallery of international standing, in an iconic world city, designed by the leading architect of his generation, Sir James Stirling. Now the gallery has outlined the brief for a refurbishment of its gallery and public spaces that will enable it to thrive for the next thirty years.
The works will transform the welcome and usability of the building, increasing the gallery’s visibility on the waterfront and within the Albert Dock, easing the transition between social and gallery environments and offering more engaging routes through the building.
Following a grant from central Government of initial funding for this project, the gallery is seeking an architect to reimagine the gallery spaces to meet the scale and ambition of today’s most exciting artists, while creating social spaces that better connect with the city and its communities, creating an environment that is flexible and inviting and able to host people, art and ideas in equal part.
