Product Description


This work uses drawings, sketches and computer images to capture a moment in the life of one of the world's busiest - and most creative - architectural offices. For three decades a leading figure in UK architecture, Terry Farrell enjoys a worldwide reputation, with major architectural and urban design projects in the UK and Asia. Best known for his exuberant London buildings of the 1980s - notably TV-am, Embankment Place at Charing Cross and the MI6 building - Farrell has now moved into a freely expressive mode of design, with the emphasis on sensuous forms and accessible imagery, influenced by working much more overseas. This snapshot of work comprises evocative drawings, models and collages, ranging from first concepts through exploratory investigations to presentation images. By showing the way in which ideas are elaborated, explored and developed, it offers insight into the creative processes of the architect. In a trenchant personal essay, Terry Farrell sets out his artistic credo, presenting the city as man's greatest work of art and attacking the cult of the minimal.
