YAPF tour: City landscapes by Southern Green

Join the Young Architectural Practitioner's Forum for their next Engage event, an outdoor tour of award-winning city landscapes by Southern Green.

Join us for an outdoor tour of award-winning city landscapes by Southern Green (Chartered Landscape Architects), including the Student Forum / Armstrong Public Realm at Newcastle University and Bigg Market.

Location: Student Forum / Armstrong Public Realm (Newcastle University) and Bigg Market

The tour will start at the Student Forum (adjacent to the Students' Union Building, Newcastle University, King's Rd, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 8QB) before walking to other locations.

Led by Liam Haggarty, Director at Southern Green.

Student Forum

A public square at the heart of the university campus. The design includes a large range of seating areas and bespoke seating types to maximise usage of the space throughout the day.

Armstrong Public Realm

In addition to raising the quality of the public ream for student and staff experience, a key purpose was to provide a welcoming and attractive visitor arrival experience for families and graduates for graduation ceremonies, providing an accessible processional route overcoming challenging levels.

Bigg Market

Reinstating the Bigg Market as a much-loved destination space through the preparation of an HLF Townscape Heritage bid with MawsonKerr Architects and subsequent detailed design.

We ask that attendees take a lateral flow test before joining the tour.
