One of Britain's foremost architects, Terry Farrell has worked on high-profile projects in cities as diverse as Seattle, Hong Kong, Dubai, Lisbon, London and Seoul. His buildings include art galleries, exhibition spaces, and museums; commercial and retail developments; residences, factories, and transit stations. This book focuses on Farrell's work from the past ten years. Each chapter is devoted to a single city, and opens with a brief outline of the city's history. We learn how Farrell's diverse and dramatic buildings were developed, from earliest sketches and blueprints to final execution, and see each of them in the context of their unique urban setting. Filled with a wealth of illustrations, plans and sketches detailing each project, this collection offers tremendous insight into the architectural process, and into the ways in which the urban architect draws from and responds to his environment.
