It is 35 years since the first phase of the refurbishment of the Grade 1 listed Albert Dock complex was completed and this once private, derelict dockland was opened to the public.
The rise of the Albert Dock in the mid-1980s at a time of economic depression and political turbulence signalled for many the beginning of the renaissance of the city of Liverpool. The lecture will look at the then state of the Albert Dock, the context within which its refurbishment took place, the new waterfront it created, the impact it has had and the broader regeneration lessons one can draw from this type of targeted public intervention and the re-birth of this iconic landmark.
Joint event with Tyne and Wear GA.
