Tyneside’s The Word on track for October opening

South Tyneside Council and development partner, Muse Developments, have taken possession of The Word, the National Centre for the Written Word ahead of next month’s official public opening.

The Word will celebrate the written word through a rolling programme of exhibitions, events and workshops. The three storey, circular cultural centre, designed by FaulknerBrowns Architects, overlooks the refurbished Market Place and incorporates a library and digitial media space, including exhibition space, a computer gaming area, a FabLab with 3D printers and vinyl and laser cutters, digitised archives, meeting rooms, children’s immersive storytelling area, OpenZone IT suite, café and a rooftop restaurant and terrace with views over the river.

The facility, delivered by Bowmer & Kirkland, the terracotta panel clad building features three floors around a central atrium linked by a feature staircase and lifts and is on track to achieve an Excellent accreditation from BREEAM.

The development forms part the £100m 365 Regeneration of South Shields.
