Northern Architecture Projects

From 2003 to 2013 when Northern Architecture ceased trading, the Association supported its sustainability and educational projects with almost £20,000 of funds.

They included:

Members of the public and built environment professionals attending events around the region as part of Northern Architecture’s public events series 2007-8. The theme of the series was Sustainability.

June 2007 – Sustainable Cities Seminar in Civic Centre Council Chamber.

July 2008 – Sustainable Building Seminar with Phil Hughes, Chairman of Ignite, The North East Centre of Excellence for Sustainable Communities

Martin Crookston, Llewellyn Davies Young
Paul Medcalf, Bellway Homes
Eric Morgan, author of The Regeneration of Newcastle/Gateshead Quays

Northern Architecture’s education workshops for schools helped young people to engage with and understand the built environment around them, how it shaped them and how they could shape it.

August 2009 Education Project

2010 Making Architecture Count – a programme was developed around key buildings in the region. It was designed to engage young people in Mathematics through Architecture and Place. The Booklets were produced from events at:
Belsay Hall
Durham Cathedral
The Sage, Gateshead
Young people visited The Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead as part of the 2012 – 13 Education Workshops.

The Trustees continue to accept applications for grants towards projects which accord with the Association’s aim of furthering the advancement of the art and science of architecture, and environmental education in the community.
