Idea of North: Ryder and Yates, Tyne Deck: Talks - Part 1

Publication Date 17 Jul 2018

The modernist master plan TyneDeck, proposed in 1969, was a bold scheme developed by architects Ryder and Yates (now Ryder Architecture). This proposal would have swept large swathes of the Quayside away by decking over the River Tyne to build a new civic oriented structure and buildings.

A newly commissioned model of the deck currently features in BALTIC’s Level 4 exhibition, Idea of North. A short screening presented by BALTIC’s archive will include interviews with Ryder and artists who have responded to the TyneDeck, 1969.

Speakers include:
    •    Rutter Carroll (Writer & Architectural Historian)
    •    Professor Mark Tewdwr-Jones (Newcastle City Futures)
    •    James Charlton and Dan Baird (Northumbria University & Infinity27).
