Liverpool was okay with just being the birthplace of the Beatles for a long time. But this is no longer the case. Bored with their antiquated reputation that is dwindling in significance as Beatles fans age and die off, the city is commissioning a new lighthouse observatory that will give Liverpool an image boost. This design, proposed by Phos Architects, looks like the virtual world version of the Tower of Babel. I, personally, hope it never gets picked. If it does, though, it will be real by 2011.
