CONE is an architectural-scale artwork by Wolfgang Weileder situated on the Dunston Staiths, a landmark Scheduled Monument on the south bank of the River Tyne in Newcastle Gateshead.


As a catalyst for debate on the diverse understanding of 'Sustainability', Cone will offer a platform for new insights and discussion, informing disciplines from fine art to urban design, community development, environmental and planning policy. Cone stems from the Jetty Project on Art & Sustainability, and interdisciplinary research project funded by the AHRC and coordinated by Newcastle University and the University of Manchester.
