The Origins of Designs of Peter Yates and Gordon Ryder at Kenton


The purpose of this article is to study the origins of the Kenton Barr Manor in Newcastle upon Tyne, in the north-east of England. This is the design of the elements and appearance, which was developed by architects Ryder and Yates in the 1960s. Its origins can be found in the thoughts and works of some of the leading architects, artists and designers of the 20th century. Public housing in the United Kingdom in the 1960s was characterized by high-rise and deck access units. The demand for new homes and the shortage of land have led to what is considered a high-density solution. In addition, the traditional trade and materials have not been restored in the Second World War, so industrial methods should be adopted.
