Terry Farrell has received a knighthood in the Queen's Birthday Honours list. He is joined by Richard Saxon, chairman of Building Design Partnership, awarded a CBE for services to construction procurement, and Roger Stephenson, awarded an OBE for services to architecture.
Farrell's knighthood is for services to architecture and urban design. He is perhaps best known for his MI6 headquarters, the Coopers and Lybrand building over London's Charing Cross station, and the British Embassy in Hong Kong.
Farrell is currently working on a new building for the Home Office, a masterplan for Preston bus station and the regeneration of Lots Road power station in London (AJ 14.6.01). 'I'm particularly proud of the citation including my work in urban design because I think the cause of urban design has really come of age, ' he said.
Zara Lamont, director of the Construction Best Practice Programme, received an OBE for services to the construction industry.
