AIA UK NEWCASTLE CITY EXCURSION
When: Saturday 14 - Sunday 15th September
Where: Newcastle/ Gateshead
This year’s annual weekend excursion will be to Newcastle upon Tyne. Join us for a weekend of talks, walking and building tours, as we explore the city’s rich history. From Roman to Postmodern, with spectacular bridges spanning the River Tyne and several contemporary gems, Newcastle offers a wealth of projects to discover.
With a focus on the Quayside, the weekend will offer tours of selected projects, city walks, a gala dinner, and of course, time to enjoy the many bridges that grace the city’s skyline.
Quayside highlights include tours of the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art (Ellis Williams), the Sage Gateshead (Foster + Partners), the Millennium Bridge (Wilkinson Eyre), and a gala dinner at the Six at Baltic with stunning views over the River Tyne. We will also visit the Byker Wall (Ralph Erskine), explore the historic City Centre, and much more.
We hope to see you there!
