Synopsis: 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.
About the Author: Thomas Faulkner was Senior Lecturer at Northumbria University 1974-2004 and later a Visiting Fellow in the School of Historical Studies at Newcastle, where he also taught in the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape. An architectural historian, he wrote and lectured extensively on the history, architecture and landscape of North-East England and was the leading authority on the work of John Dobson. He died in July 2014. Until his retirement, Peter Beacock was Head of Department of Architecture at Northumbria University, teaching design and architectural history. Originally from Lincolnshire, he studied architecture at Newcastle University, and after graduation remained in the area, developing a particular interest in the region's architecture and its importance in creating the character of the north east. He has become a strong advocate of the nature of "place", which informed his approach to teaching and he has contributed to a number of publications on the subject including the RIBA North East "Townscape" series. He has been chair of the RIBA Northumbria Brach, a member of Regional Council, and a regional representative on RIBA National Council. Paul Jones is a Professor of Architecture at Northumbria University. Originally from Newcastle, he left his home city in 1990 to study at Manchester School of Architecture, and after an accomplished student career he was invited back to the university to teach design part time, whilst working for a practice that specialises in sustainability. In 2002, he returned to the North East and joined Northumbria University as a senior lecturer, teaching design and history. Since then he has held important positions within the university, including the Director of Architecture Programmes. He has won a number of national and international awards for his design work, and in 2011 he received a National Teaching Fellowship- the most prestigious award for teaching in UK Higher Education. In 2012, he was awarded a Chair in Learning and Teaching for his scholarship in the subject.
