North East Showcase

Iconic landmarks from around the North East come to life with Augmented Reality technology.


One of the most exciting elements of our exhibition is the North East Showcase wall, a giant map highlighting eleven of the region's most impressive buildings. From making cancer treatment feel comfortable to inspiring the next generation of inventors, each building has excelled in its mission to create purpose-built environments for its users. When you visit Future Buildings, you can explore the map through Augmented Reality technology, using the iPads provided or your own smartphone. 

You can read more about the inspiration and architectural team behind each building by clicking on their pages below. 



We take visitors on a journey through time and explore the building innovations that have transformed the world around us. Future Buildings is part of the Great Exhibition of the North - a free, summer-long celebration of the North of England’s pioneering spirit.
