Don't Sweep It Under The Carpet!

This is really neat! An example of how imaginative design can give a real lift to urban town centres.

For the past couple of days I've been working at my head office in Newcastle and just down the road outside the Laing Gallery is an area of great architectural fun where the flooring has been designed to look like a carpet, the corner of which is curled up against a building!

Elsewhere on this little square, strips of paving look as though they have been ripped up and folded back - the lifted portion forming a bench where people can sit. The area revealed by this rectangular strip of paving has a glass section under which can be seen lit wiring cables as though looking at a printed circuit board.
