Keywords: Liverpool, architecture, anthropology, regeneration, DIY design


Abstract: This paper is a personal view of the city of Liverpool from an architect and author who has lived and worked there for over sixty years. It examines the history and cultural make-up of the city and places its social movements in the context of recent urban regeneration projects led by high profile cultural events such as City of Culture, 2008. It ends with a call to engage local communities in architectural and urban design projects.
