In 2019, O’Donnell + Tuomey (ODT) won the competition to rethink and extend the new Liverpool School of Architecture. The Irish practice was chosen over the thoughtful submissions of the other finalists – Grafton Architects, Eric Parry, Carmody Groarke, Haworth Tompkins and 6A. To witness the development of the project has been a fascinating experience. After the competition a collegial approach was agreed upon: a team that included University Estates, ODT architects and LSA representatives was set up to form the project control group. Five years later, the building site is in full swing and new challenges for the School of Architecture of the future are at the horizon.
