The designs are intended to contribute to ideas being proposed for the regeneration of each of the sites.

Steve Rotheram, Metro Mayor of the Liverpool City Region, said: “I want the city-region to be somewhere people want to live, work and visit, and the quality of our built environment plays a key role in achieving that.

“We know we have a vibrant and innovative architectural sector and it is really good to see so many city region-based practices taking part in Forgotten Spaces.

“It is important to me that we not only nurture our local talent, but also welcome talent from across the country to be part of our placemaking agenda.”
