Description"'Rise and Fall' by Lulu Quinn was installed in 2007. It is a 6m high, steel and glass archway designed to create a meeting place and dynamic viewing platform []. It is animated from within by white fluorescent tubes [] Behind the sculpture, the High Level and Tyne Bridges tower above the river [] The sculpture is a gateway installation of Gateshead Riverside Park. Pipewellgate [], which runs parallel to the river, takes its name from the 'pipe well' from which wooden pipes carried Gateshead's water supply. It was once a centre of densely packed industrial and trading activity largely cleared after 1930 http://isee.gateshead.gov.uk/detail.php?kv=4967&t=objects&type=related Riverside Park was landscaped between 1960 and 1970 []" Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2011.
