the art FACTORY

Newcastle has experienced significant economic, cultural and physical change in recent decades, moving away from a post-industrial economy. The city is left with many imperfect and broken fragments that are necessary to be re-connected in order to revitalize the city. Therefore, with a growing industry in culture arts and moving towards a cultural hub, this project looks into the expansion of the School of Creative Arts – Fine Art in the city, creating better opportunities and engagement for the students and public through adaptive reuse of abandoned and disused buildings that are buried under the existing urban fabric of Newcastle city, giving it a new life and identity.
