It’s a funny thing. You wait a few years for a new building with some interesting reflecting surfaces, and then four come along at once. Here we are with four different buildings in the centre of Newcastle, and they all feature lots of reflective glass walls.
I’ve mentioned the City Library’s Big Glass Wall before, but there’s no harm in showing it again. This is how Bewick Court looks refelcted in the new library:
From there, it’s a short walk to the Haymarket, where the fancy new structure going up over the Metro station now has some glass in place. Here’s St Thomas’s Church, reflected onto Northumberland Street:
And around the far side, you can see this oddly squashed reflection of Newcastle Civic Centre:
The new building at Newcastle University has some nice glass, too:
which on closer examination shows another warped version of the Civic Centre:
And finally for today, the Eldon Square South development now has some glass in place. This big curvy bit should interact in interesting ways with the glass of The Gate, which it faces:
and this big flat bit is relfecting one of the towers of the Co-op building.
I’ve got a load more pictures to sort out, and I’ll try to get to those over the next few days.
