My Man Mint by Michael Chaplin is a writing commission for Idea of North, particularly inspired by the TyneDeck.

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.
