The Sage

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 17 May 2014 in Architecture and Portfolio.

The Sage auditorium in Gateshead on the banks of the River Tyne. This architectural masterpiece houses two auditoriums, rehearsal rooms, studios, and arts exhibition spaces, as well as restaurants and bars.

The acoustic qualities are exceptional for a variety of performances including full symphony orchestras, soloists, folk music, rock music, dance, spoken word,etc.

Finished in Photoshop with Nik Silver Efex.
