Being proud of my language and cultural heritage is archaic I guess? Pfft.

I meant more that you lived without electricity and running water in a joking kind of way

For some reason I always had in my head the sort of really old fashioned misshapen bond bricks, like the dock wall is built of rather than what the dockside buildings are built of.

it would still be in keeping with the area and look sort of like a castle, which could be intimidating if not cheesy.

I'd like a castle/fortress kind of look too. Keeps it traditional and the inside could be more futuristic. It should stand out on the historic waterfront but not detract.

Aye. A Prince Ruperts Tower could easily be incorporated using the same type of stone as the dock walls.

To be honest though  - what I care most about is being unique and instantly recognisable. It could be ugly as fuck - as long as people know straight away - that's Everton that is!
    

I'm only here for the cladding/Bramley Moore Dock updates

................I want there to be some traditional materials used but I don't want it to be some kind of Disneyworld design .  @Simon Paul has already hinted that UNESCO are happy with the draft design so we just have to wait and see,.
We are special ,we are Everton.

A castle, with a moat, and a drawbridge, and a bunch of cannons aimed at mordor....

The cost of stonework is far higher than brickwork and I mean far higher .But there might be someone out there still producing the concrete panels of the 60's and then it can look like a garden fence . Personally the colour of the bricks is of no real importance but there are brown bricks cream bricks and many more colours ,there are even BLUE bricks although they are a grey blue .

I hope this has not the cat out of the bag .Sorry Dan .

Building a brick structure would be hugely expensive and time consuming. I dare say brickwork will be some sort of feature of the design but it won’t be the overall redeeming look.   
There are only two things I can't stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and the Dutch.

As long as it has a tower and the ale is good and it actually happens idgaf I suppose
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.
