NZ2564 : Patches in the Blue Carpet, Newcastle

taken 9 years ago, near to Gateshead, Great Britain

Patches in the Blue Carpet, Newcastle
Patches in the Blue Carpet, Newcastle
Designed by Thomas Heatherwick, the blue carpet stands in front of the Laing Art Gallery in Newcastle. Installed in 2001 the carpet, which wasn't that popular as piece of local art / urban installation, has rapidly faded to a dull grey colour - but as can be seen from the new tiles put down as a repair, the original colour was much brighter. In this photo the lovely wooden curving stairway at the far end of the square is hidden behind white plastic.
