Gehry's Sunderland scheme set to be unveiled 'within weeks'

Frank Gehry is on the verge of formally agreeing to design an 'iconic' bridge over the River Wear in Sunderland.

The global star has been locked in deep negotiations with local regeneration bosses, who hope the bridge will trigger an economic renaissance in the depressed town.

The move represents the latest move in the practice's increasing UK workload. Gehry recently completed the Maggie's Centre in Dundee and is currently working-up his competition-winning proposals for the King Alfred site in Brighton.

A source inside regeneration agency Sunderland Arc told the AJ that there are 'just one or two formalities' that need to be 'ironed out' before Gehry's scheme can be formally unveiled 'within weeks'.
