Historic Newcastle University building set to be brought back to life as new exhibition venue

The university announced last year that it was renaming the Claremont Building after Sir Terry Farrell, a world-renowned architect who grew up in Gosforth

Newcastle University has now won planning permission for its project to turn the grade two listed Barras Bridge site, which dates back to 1896, into a new ‘urban room’ where city residents can “learn about their past, present and future through an open and welcoming centre”.
