West 8, Designed by Erick van Egeraat
location Middlesbrough
function square
contributed by MI_MOA

Surrounding mima, at 19000 square metres, is Middlesbrough Centre Square, the largest civic space in Europe. Also designed by Erick van Egeraat Associated Architects, along with landscape architects West 8, it includes a 120-jet water feature, innovative corten steel walkways and large areas of lawn. Building and square are situated on a formerly abandoned territory on the brink of the city centre. Together they form the key element in Middlesborough's revitalisation programme. Whilst mima will host an internationally important programme of exhibitions, presenting the best of art and craft from 1900 to the present day, the new square will become a unique outdoor auditorium for Middlesbrough and the Tees Valley. The innovative design of the square and areas around the library and mima will offer a remarkable platform for diverse cultural programming.
