Sage, Gateshead, England

This evening, I am posting information on the Sage, an eclectic sort of building located in Gateshead on the south bank of the River Tyne, opposite Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England.

This building, locally known as the ‘slug’, was designed by Foster & Partners and completed in 2004. It was specifically designed as a centre for musical education, performances and conferences. Inside are three discrete , and acoustically segregated, performance venues with an aggregate seating capacity of 2725.

In a wider context, the Sage is part of the Gateshead Quays Development project which includes the nearby BALTIC Centre  and Millennium Bridge.
