Sir Terry Farrell to undertake review of architecture and built environment for UK Government

An independent review of architecture and the built environment has been commissioned by the UK Culture and Creative Industries Minister Ed Vaizey. The study will be undertaken by Sir Terry Farrell of Terry Farrell & Partners who will be supported by an expert advisory panel. Farrell is expected to submit a report by the end of 2013.

The review will look at four main areas:

• Understanding the Government’s role in promoting design quality in architecture and the built environment
• The economic benefits of architecture - maximising the UK’s growth potential
• Cultural heritage and the built environment
• Promoting education, outreach, and skills

Sir Terry Farrell said: "I am delighted to be heading this important review at this time. Many countries have an effective architecture policy and I intend to learn from what has worked elsewhere and also learn from all those involved here in architecture and the built environment. Architecture and the built environment is so important to us culturally, economically, socially and environmentally."
