RIBA North West is hosting a series of talks aimed at providing architects and graduates in the region with inspiration from a range of award-winning national and international speakers. Each event will feature an individual or practice who will share their experiences within their particular fields of expertise, and highlight that the routes to success within the fields of architecture and design can take many forms.
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.
This event is part of the Design Manchester DM18 Festival programme.
