A controverisal building design by celebrated London architecture office. The structure sits high above the River Tyne on its south side, in Gateshead. The rippling organic form of the building, which has been compared to various animals, adds drama to the river setting but contrasts with the more orthogonal architectural setting. The concept and design ties in with the Bilbao effect, ie city councils around the world saw what Bilbao had done with their Guggenheim Museum design by architect Frank Gehry – which pulled in massive amounts of new visitors – and sought to emulate it.
