neo-[insert older movement]

Architecture National Museums Liverpool have updated the flickr collection for the new Museum of Liverpool at the Pier Head. It really is an extraordinary looking building, which unlike the range of skyscrapers that are due to shoot up along the waterfront has a distinctive look that plays off against the flow of the Mersey's waves.

I know there have been some criticisms of its location, juxtaposed against the Albert Dock on one side and the so-called three graces on the other, but for me, this is exactly what architecture should be doing, each new generation and movement easily identifiable in comparison to what's gone before. If everything is just neo-[insert older movement], art stagnates [via].
