Terry Farrell Partnership


Terry Farrell Partnership
   Terry Farrell was born in Cheshire in 1938 and trained at Durham University (1956–61) and the University of Pennsylvania (1962–4). He then worked in partnership with Nicholas Grimshaw up to 1980 before establishing the Terry Farrell Partnership. The practice has contributed greatly to London’s cityscape (Farrell has been chair of the Urban Design Group) and has expanded greatly over its first twenty years. Major projects have been the redevelopment of Charing Cross station, the TV-am headquarters, the Henley Regatta HQ, Limehouse TV studios and the postmodern Alban Gate office block at London Wall. Farrell is probably Britain’s most outspoken postmodernist, influenced by Michael Graves and Charles Jencks, and his modern art deco style is noted for a striking use of colour and decoration.
