Sir Terry Farrell, CBE, is considered to be the UK’s leading architect planner, with offices in London, Hong Kong and Shanghai.
During almost 60 years in practice he has completed many award-winning buildings and masterplans including Embankment Place and The Home Office Headquarters building in London, as well as millennium projects such as The Deep in Hull and the Centre for Life in Newcastle. He designed the current Charing Cross Station as well as the MI6 Building in London, an exuberant work of postmodernism.
Current projects in Kent include Otterpool Park, the proposed new Garden Town on the former Folkestone Racecourse site, and the UKC campus Masterplan.
This talk will be part of the new University of Kent ‘Open Thinking’ programme. Sir Terry will begin by talking about his firm’s international work and will then move closer to home to consider the challenges of the new building which will be coming to Kent over the next few years.
The event is being organised jointly by the University’s Faculty of Social Sciences and School of Architecture together with the Canterbury Society.
