Gateshead car park

  • Comment

Box upon box of pink wafer biscuits and fondant fancies went into making a cake version of Owen Luder's Gateshead car park in aid of a RIBA northern region event during Architecture Week. The confection car park, by Helen Smith, an artist from the Waygood Gallery in Newcastle, scooped the first prize at the Mad Architects' Tea Party cake competition. Other entries included a Pompidou Centre by local architects David & Jane Darcy, and the Blackpool Tower made out of Matchmakers and Jaffa Cakes by Joe Woodhouse and Becky Miller. A version of the Newcastle Civic Centre proved too tasty and was quickly demolished by visitors.
