The Mersey Observatory competition was organised to establish a design for a nature observatory / visitor center for the Liverpool Harbour and River Mersey Waterfront area. Our proposal survived all four selection rounds and made it to the top group, of which the five shortlisted proposals where chosen. The competition was won by Duggan Morris Architects of London.
