Tyne and Wear
Foster and Partners 2004
The Sage Gateshead is a dramatic
application of Foster's innovation with irregular glass domes, this one
forming a very large and friendly caterpillar along the Gateshead side of
the River Tyne, opposite the center of Newcastle.
Due to open in the winter of
2004/05, the Sage will be a
"pioneering international centre for music and musical
discovery", supported by "the largest Arts Lottery grant ever
given outside London in any artform."

How to visit
The Sage is part of the
Gateshead Quays development, on Gateshead's South Shore Road. It can
easily be reached from the center of Newcastle via the (pedestrian) Gateshead
Millennium Bridge. The
nearest Metro stop, on the Newcastle side of the Tyne, is Manors (though
Monument and Newcastle Station are only a short walk).
the time of writing the building was still under construction. For updated
information please visit The Sage's web site at www.thesagegateshead.com.
