Northern Architecture is the Architecture Centre for the North East of England; it is an independent charitable body with a regional remit (covering an area from the river Tweed to the river Tees), able both to promote the benefits of high quality design and to engage both professionals and public in the process of delivering this.
Northern Architecture is one of over 20 such centres in the UK currently supported by bodies such as CABE (the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment) and Arts Council England, as part of government support for high quality architecture and design and the creation of sustainable communities. Northern Architecture works with a large number of individuals, agencies and organisations in the North East from the cultural, environmental, educational, business and community sectors.
We see a North East of well-designed buildings and places - and people expecting, engaging with and celebrating this quality.
We work with all people involved in buildings and places in the North East, including those who commission, design, build and use them.
We strive to make people aware of, aspire to and apply good design – to create better places that improve quality of life.
