Architects named for ‘reimagining’ of Tate Liverpool

05th May, 2022

Tate Liverpool has announced 6a architects will lead the design for a major ‘reimagining’ the landmark gallery.

Seeing off strong competition from several other companies, including Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios and Witherford Watson Mann architects, 6a architects won the tender to transform Tate Liverpool and help create an flexible and inviting environment that is able to host people, art and ideas in equal part.

Tate Liverpool director Helen Legg said: "I’m excited to embark on a journey with 6a to reimagine what Tate Liverpool can be and how it can best serve the needs of art, artists and our visitors into the future. 6a have an outstanding track record of reworking historic buildings, often in partnership with cultural organisations and I’m confident in their ability to deliver something very special with us in the coming years.”

Stephanie Macdonald, Founding Director at 6a architects, said: “We are thrilled to be appointed to design the next chapter of Tate Liverpool.

“We are honoured to have the opportunity to work with Tate Liverpool to imagine how this great museum can once again offer artists and audiences a renewed experience of art reflecting the warmth and energy that this extraordinary city is known for.”
