About the Author
Sir Terry Farrell is one of the world's foremost architects and urban planners. Through his imagination has been shaped and inspired by the many cities where he has lived and worked, it is London that he has become most closely associated with. During forty years in practice, Farrell has transformed London's skyline and animated the banks of the Thames with his Charing Cross Station and M16 headquarters buildings. It is, though, through his long-term involvement in London's urban planning - through specific projects, as well as through advocacy and initiating public debate - that Farrell has made his greatest contribution to this great metropolis. He is currently the government champion for the planning of the Thames Gateway Project and the Mayor's architecture and planning lead for the Outer London Commission. He also works with and for many London boroughs and for public and conservation agencies such as English Heritage.
