By Jeff Young. The year is 2040. Superblock is a 1,470-floortower block built from the salvaged concrete and bricks of the 67 Liverpool high rises demolished in 2005. 14,000 feet high, home to 140,000 people, it is an echo chamber reverberating with voices, like a monstrous filing cabinet full of the filed lives of everyone who ever lived there. Superblock was developed with tenants of the Liverpool high-rises and the Foundation of Art and Creative Technology.
