ADG's Phil Burgess Enjoys City's Architecture...

ADG's Director Phil Burgess enjoyed some well earned R&R whilst visiting London and Newscastle in recent weeks and took in some of the city's exciting architecture.

Whilst in London Phil was able to visit The Shard, a glass-clad tower known as the 'Shard of Glass' with 72 habitable floors, a viewing gallery and open-air observation deck on the 72nd floor, and at a height of 244.3 metres (802 ft) it's the tallest building in the EU and the second tallest free-standing structure in the UK.

Phil's second trip took in the sites of Newcastle and Gateshead which has seen large-scale regeneration and has replaced much of it's former shipping premises with imposing new office developments; an innovative tilting bridge, the Gateshead Millennium Bridge commissioned by Gateshead Council and has integrated the older Newcastle Quayside more closely with major cultural developments in Gateshead, including the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, the venue for the Turner Prize 2011, and the Norman Foster-designed The Sage Gateshead's music centre.
