Tyneside, Brutalism & The Get Carter Car Park






Reminiscing on Tyneside's Brutalist architecture phase and what replaced it I finally ended up understanding, that compared to today's feminine glass and steel postmodern shells I actually have a fondness for the masculine Brutalism I knew and despised in my youth.  



Long gone are the harsh and brutal Soviet style blocks which saw Michael Caine shoot and punch his way across the North East, the bright and shiny new Tyneside is dedicated to bugman student accommodation and latte drinking feminists.
