Liver building

I chose to blog about the Liver building to show the contrasting architecture in my local city of Liverpool, I have posted about the modern looking daily post building and now the famous liver building. The first thing that strikes you is the size of the building, it simply dominates the waterfront. I think its style is similar to buildings on New York avenues with lots of slim arched windows, I also find the shape slightly reminiscent of a grand cathedral with the tall front tower with an oblong shape behind it. Overall it is a very interesting piece of historical architecture with a rich culture.
