01 LIVER­POOL CREST OF A WAVE

Identity - - ANTENNAE -

The Mar­itime Knowl­edge Hub, a Dhs96 mil­lion, 6400-square me­tre fa­cil­ity ded­i­cated to ma­rine en­gi­neer­ing re­search and de­vel­op­ment, is to be de­signed by Sch­midt Ham­mer Lassen Ar­chi­tects. The cen­tre­piece of the scheme is the his­toric but cur­rently derelict Hy­draulic Tower, which will be brought back to life to house the Mar­itime In­dus­tries Cen­tre’s work and meet­ing spa­ces, three pools (in­clud­ing a Hy­droLab), a café and vis­i­tors’ por­tal plus an ob­ser­va­tory. A sec­ond, new build­ing is also planned and will ac­com­mo­date of­fice, in­cu­ba­tion, teach­ing and cul­tural spa­ces as well as a tank for a state-of-the-art Off­shore Sur­vival Train­ing Cen­tre.
