Watch Sir Terry Farrell’s Royal Town Planning Institute Gold Medal Lecture
On October 16th at the Farrells designed Royal Institution, Sir Terry Farrell delivered his Gold Medal lecture to 200 guests from the private, public and voluntary sectors. In the talk, Sir Terry reflected on his long career and spoke about the future of city-making as a creative and collaborative endeavour. He referenced more than half a century’s work across the globe and highlighted the role that architects and planners can play in creating places where people love to be, showing many Farrells proposals that have been implemented.
The RTPI Gold Medal is considered the highest accolade in urban planning. Only 15 individuals have received the Gold Medal since it was first awarded in 1953. Sir Terry received the award in light of his “outstanding contribution” to urban planning and design. Stephen Wilkinson, president of the RTPI, said of Sir Terry in July: “He is one of the few top practitioners who has truly embraced architecture, urban design and planning in a holistic vision and so vitally helped to advance integrated thinking among these disciplines.”

My work these last 50 or so years has been heavily involved in creating a kinder, less doctrinaire world than that of the previous era of high modernism. It has been about layering, learning from the past and regenerating with communities’ involvement from the bottom up.
