Byker Wall


  • Description

    Architect: Ralph Erskine (1914-2005). A 1970s housing estate in the functionalist romantic style, grade II* listed and regarded by many, including UNESCO, as a pioneering social housing development — though derided by others. The "wall" acts as a rampart to shelter the inner development from a busy road and a cold wind. Newcastle upon Tyne, England.
