RIBA AWARDS

THE SAGE, GATESHEAD Foster and Partners Client: Gateshead Council This is undoubtedly an important building - embraced by Tynesiders - and may gain historical significance in the future as a watershed in the development of geometrically complex, 'form-led', digitaltechnology facilitated design. The curvilinear envelope results in soaring spaces, while the layout - with the front-of-house facing the river - is easily legible and functions well.

£70 million. 20,000m

THE PERFORMANCE ACADEMY RMJM Client: Newcastle College The Performance Academy is fresh and has a strong identity, without resorting to 'attentionseeking' forms. The use of colour and light with simple, industrial materials creates a building that is considered and wellproportioned. The building uses the front-of-house analogy of a theatre, creating a foyer-type space that provides a lively, democratic and social area.

£21 million. 10,000m
