It doesn't exactly complement the Three Graces. But, IMHO, the Mann Island redevelpoment is better than the "Cloud" thing originally proposed.

... In 2009 Merseytravel’s Ferry Terminal on the Pier Head won the Carbuncle Cup after being described as “a crude, jazzy-angled lump of c***, a terrible example of an architecturally illiterate client trying to be groovy and getting it so, so wrong, like a 50-year-old making a fashion faux pas in a disco”.

And last year the new Museum of Liverpool took runner-up.
I wonder what they've got against Liverpool think

As an architect friend said "Anish Kapoor (designer of the Orbit), has a remarkable skill: he can persuade people to part with vast sums of money, with which he then produces c**p".

I'd love to know what the so-called architect was smoking when he dreamed that up ! Each to their own I suppose.
