AWP Designs Cycle Centre Lookout for Newcastle’s Malmo Quay

© sbda

As part of the Newcastle-upon-Tyne‘s Malmo Quay development masterplanned by URBED, AWP Office for Territorial Reconfiguration has designed a cycle hub and community hall with a gradually ascending ramp that leads to a lookout platform with views of the surrounding Newcastle Quayside and Ouseburn Valley. Though this distinctive ramp and lookout will be a landmark at a prominent location on the Tyne river, AWP states that “by revealing a new perspective of the city and the Valley, the cycle hub will become a landmark celebrated precisely for the view it creates,” rather than merely for its striking appearance above the roofline of the cycle hub below.

A proposal to create a floating swimming pool in the Thames river will step up a gear tomorrow, as Studio Octopi will present their design for the Thames Baths at the Guardian’s World Cities Day Challenge. Originally created as part of the Architecture Foundation’s competition to design ways to reconnect Londoners with the river, the Thames Baths design has gained momentum over the last year, with a recent iteration of the design proposed for London‘s Victoria Embankment.
