Terry Farrell

Terry Farrell has hailed his practice's appointment to design a £100 million public building in Guangzhou China as a major breakthrough for uk architects. The competition win for the giant Guangzhou Daily Cultural Plaza represents the first appointment of a uk-based architect to design a major modern building in mainland China. The building will house China's biggest daily newspaper as well as cultural and commercial activities. 'What's interesting about this project is the way that the British and Chinese governments are treating it as a breakthrough,' Farrell said. The other shortlisted candidates were Architectonica from the us and Carlos Ott of Canada. The building will be a partnership between Farrell and a state-run Chinese design institute with the uk architect handing over responsibility halfway through the working drawing stage.
