It’s commonly known fact that Liverpool has more graded buildings than anywhere outside London. But do we have more eccentric loons too? We’d like to think so.
We got this strange note last week.
A group hug, One Park Hug, will take place on Wednesday 19 August at 12.30pm, where a human chain will be formed around the building to show the city’s love for One Park West.
‘Landmark residential building One Park West has come under fire from all directions for its architectural prowess sculpted by world famous architect Cesar Pelli.
‘Recently nominated for industry raspberry, the Carbuncle Cup by Building Design magazine, we think One Park West deserves some love and we need your help to show the world, Liverpool is proud of its architecture.
‘A group hug, One Park Hug, will take place on Wednesday 19 August at 12.30pm, where a human chain will be formed around the building to show the city’s love for One Park West and the public’s appreciation for world class architecture.
‘Guy Butler, Senior Development Manager, Grosvenor: “Love it or hate it, One Park West is here to stay and I’m proud to say will continue to provoke debate for many years to come as any landmark building should.
“We’re urging the people of Liverpool, those who love architecture and those who want to find out more, to come to and join us and appreciate a building design which has really stuck its head above the parapet and has, without a doubt, vastly improved an area of our city centre which was formerly wasteland.”’
Right you are Guy.
Anyway there’s a Facebook group named One Park Hug which has been established for the building’s supporters to join and find out more about One Park Hug. You can even follow @oneparkhug on Twitter.
