Revised and brought right up to date from its first sell-out edition of 2006, Newcastle and Gateshead: Architecture and Heritage takes the reader on an architectural journey through time, from the medieval St Andrew's Church in Newcastle, dating from around 1150, to Newcastle University's 'Into' building, completed in 2013. Newcastle and Gateshead enjoy a remarkably ancient and diverse architectural heritage, which deserves to be appreciated and celebrated. At the same time, with projects such as the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, Sage Gateshead and other developments on both banks of the Tyne, the years since the beginning of the twenty-first century have witnessed one of the most architecturally exciting periods in the area's history. This book has been written with the insights of both the practising architect and the architectural historian, providing a unique exploration of our built heritage, from the well-loved to the decidedly controversial. It is illustrated with more than 300 colour photographs, most of which were specially taken for the book, and includes fascinating introductory sections for each historic period, examining the social, cultural, religious and economic background of the time.
