Inspiration: Sir Terry Farrell

Wed Oct 17, 2018

The RIBA North West Inspiration Series returns to Design Manchester for the second year with a lecture by one of Britain’s best known and most inspirational architects.

Sir Terry Farrell CBE, Principal at Farrells, is considered to be the UK’s leading architect planner, with offices in London, Manchester, Hong Kong and Shanghai. During 50 years in practice he has completed many award-winning buildings and masterplans including Embankment Place, the Home Office HQ and the Northern Gateway, as well as millennium projects such as The Deep in Hull and Centre for Life in Newcastle.

Sir Terry, who was born in Sale and studied architecture at Newcastle University, is a prominent voice in British architecture and planning. In 2014, at invitation of Ed Vaizey, he and his firm published the Farrell Review of Architecture and the Built Environment, to offer expert guidance on the direction of British architecture with 60 recommendations, many of which have now been adopted.

The Inspiration Series features award-winning national and international speakers presenting their work and their experiences, highlighting that routes to success in architecture and design can take many and varied forms.
