New Museum, Dynamic Design

Concerning the Museum of Liverpool, Inhabitat’s Bridgette Meinhold writes:
[E]xcitement is building over what will be the largest museum built in the UK for over a century. Designed by Copenhagen-based 3XN, the new museum is a bold geometric structure situated by the Mersey River, on a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Inspired by the surrounding port, the dynamic low-rise structure is reminiscent of the trading ships which at one time dominated the harbor. Naturally, sustainability and energy efficiency have played a role in the design, most notably including the use of an energy efficient ‘trigeneration’ system to create heat, electricity and cooling in one integrated process that will reduce carbon emissions by 884 tonnes each year.

The new museum opened yesterday.
