Owen Luder at the top of the Get Carter car park
Architect Owen Luder’s most famous building, the Get Carter car park in Gateshead, is scheduled for demolition. This is nothing new for the once acclaimed 81-year-old Brutalist pioneer. His concrete giant, the Tricorn Centre in Portsmouth, is already down, and his other iconic Gateshead structure, the Dunston Rocket, faces a similar fate. ‘Get Luder’ charts his last-ditch bid to force a reappraisal and reinvention of the car park made famous by the Michael Caine gangster film as demolition day looms, and views a man struggling to retain his pride and dignity as he watches his work destroyed in his own lifetime.
