Every city needs a place where people can come together to debate its future.

– Sir Terry Farrell

Instigated by renowned architect-planner Sir Terry Farrell, the Farrell Centre is a new centre for architecture and cities in Newcastle, UK. Our mission is to widen the debate around the crucial roles that architecture and planning play in the contemporary world in ways that are engaging, innovative and challenging.

The Farrell Centre is admission free and offers a variety of experiences for visitors of all ages: exhibitions, public talks and debates, activities for schools, young people, community groups, events for built environment professionals, as well as publications, podcasts and other digital projects.
