Sage Music Centre, Gateshead

Client: SH Structures

The Sage Music Centre is actually two structures: a building which is almost machine-like in its complexity and an independent weather shield.

The fabricator was given a disk of analysis output data; Maltech were given the task of designing 3d connections which could be fabricated and erected. We used state of the art software to interrogate the geometry of the building in order to design connections quickly and efficiently.

Should you be fortunate to visit the Sage Centre you will appreciate its fine acoustics and architecture, but think too of the symphony of fine engineering which underlie both.
