Farrells, the award-winning British design firm, celebrates 25 years in Hong Kong with a series of exhibitions and public events

Lead by Sir Terry Farrell, who founded the practice in London in 1965, the firm is behind iconic structures such as MI6 Headquarters in London, Beijing South Station and Hong Kong's Peak Tower. It celebrates its 25th anniversary in Hong Kong with URBAN DIALOGUE, a dual exhibition supported by a workshop, a forum, lecture and curator's tours that offer an in-depth look inside the architect planner's process and an understanding of the place of the individual in urban design.

Farrells has made a significant contribution to Hong Kong's development over the last 25 years, with train stations, business and cultural districts and leisure facilities, all forming an integral part in shaping the city's urban spaces. Projects include the design of the iconic Peak Tower, masterplanning of the new urban district and major transportation hub of West Kowloon, and the new Kennedy Town MTR station and swimming pool.

URBAN DIALOGUE introduces Farrells' design practice that includes creating and fostering community as an integral part of the architectural and planning process. Through a process of immersion, observation and research, the team at Farrells has developed a unique approach to urban design by discovering 'what a place is telling you it wants to be’.

A 4m tall snow globe at the Peak will encompass the original architectural models crafted by the Farrells team 25 years ago, which won them the project to build the iconic tower. For those that want to be more involved with the topic of urban design in Hong Kong and internationally, additional activities have been organised during the two week period at the Fringe Club.
