Sir Terry Farrell donates £1m to archive project


Architect Sir Terry Farrell is donating £1m for the renovation of the Farrell Centre at Newcastle University, which will house a new architectural exhibition centre featuring his work. The facility, at the university’s city centre campus, will also include an ‘urban room’, where “anyone can come to learn and discuss the city of Newcastle, its past as well as proposals for its future”, and a start-up space for recent graduates. The Centre will house thousands of items spanning six decades of Farrell’s career, including models, drawings, papers and diaries referencing designs such as the MI6 Building in London in London, Beijing South Station in China and the Embankment Place development around Charing Cross station. It also includes pieces from his schooldays in Newcastle and from his time as a student studying architecture at Newcastle University. Farrell said, “I’m delighted that my archive will find a permanent home here, and that the Centre will be a focus for exhibition and debate about city making in my home town.” Farrell played a large part in shaping the way his home city looks, including developing the Newcastle Quayside masterplan, designing the International Centre for Life, and refurbishing and extending the Great North Museum – Hancock.

LTS Architects’ Science Gallery London completes


LTS Architects has completed work on Science Gallery London, near London Bridge, a “groundbreaking new public space where art and science collide”. Housed within a wing of the original


Guy’s Hospital, the space provides exhibition galleries, a lecture and performance theatre, events facilities, plus a cafe, shop, and newly restored Georgian courtyard. LTS Architects was appointed by


Proposed scheme for the Farrell Centre in Eldon Place, Newcastle


King’s College London to create what the architects said is a “flexible, adaptable space, with clear navigation”. The architectural response “opens up the building, positioning the main entrance within the streetscape, rather than inside the courtyard, and carving out a large glazed opening from the masonry facade to act as a ‘shop front’ revealing the exhibitions and activities within”. The architects continued: “The interventions are sympathetic to the original building, using the same palette of materials as the listed facade, yet stretching and moulding them into an entrance sequence formed of contemporary architectural elements”.

seat wall draws visitors into the gallery from the north and completes the Portland Stone plinth of the building. The goods lift tower is placed within the street, “cloaked with dynamically edge-lit lasered glass panels”. Inside, the volumes are open and continuous, with spaces that can be lit, closed off or opened up at the whim of a curator. This “enables ultimate flexibility so that the galleries can change their aspect completely from one exhibition to the next”. The ground floor, which is used as a cafe space and shop by day can be reconfigured easily into an events space at night. The courtyard, previously a car park, is now a fully restored and accessible public square. Greg Shannon, director, LTS Architects,


said: “Our sensitive refurbishment is a key part of the redevelopment of the vibrant and rapidly changing London Bridge area, providing a major new addition to the cultural landscape of the city. ” LTS Architects worked closely with Arup Lighting and LDA Design to deliver the project.
