Tyne Deck

Visualisation video animation of the Tyne Deck for the Idea of the North exhibition at the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art. The project included creating and integrating a real-world scale model of the proposal from laser-scanned point-cloud of an existing tabletop scale model which used the original architects’ blueprints.

Conceived in 1969 by world-renown North East architects Ryder and Yates, the proposal was for a huge platform to be constructed across the River Tyne between the Swing Bridge and where the Gateshead Millennium Bridge now stands.

BALTIC showcased the model at an event as part of their Idea of North Tyne Deck exhibition. Feedback received from organisers and those who attended reflected the great value this in-context 3D visualisation added to their understanding of the project and the visual impact it would have had on the area.
