Architect Owen Luderâ€™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. â€˜Get Luderâ€™ 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.
