Newcastle Civic Centre by George Kenyon
Opened in 1968 by King Olav V of Norway. And famously visited by Jimmy Carter, then President of the United States in 1977.
“It’s a wonderful expression of civic pride and the idea that we can create cities that everyone who lives there feels a part of – values that are becoming more important everyday.”
