It's hip to be square at Tribeca site.

Byline: Neil Hodgson

A FUTURISTIC cube-shaped building incorporating a series of turning prisms on its exterior is planned for the city centre in the coming months.

The design by London architect Foster Lomas was chosen as winner from six entries in a competition to design the Tribeca Infobox, by Liverpool developer Urban Splash.

Tribeca is the pounds 100m regeneration of the Great George Street area of the city by Urban Splash, which plans a thriving five-acre community.

The infobox will be a permanent building on the site, acting initially as an information centre for the whole scheme.

Urban Splash is providing pounds 500,000 towards the cost of building the Infobox and work should start next year.

Euan Watson, Foster Lomas design team leader, said: "We believe that our design will become a much loved and much talked about fixture in Liverpool."
