While Ralph Erskine's design for New Byker was far removed from the neo-brutalism of much 1960s and 1970s public housing development, its focus on preventing change inhibited the community's continual struggle to thrive. With its singular focus on protection, the plan was too centrifugal, too exclusionary, too 'arctic' in its outlook.
