Farrell Independent Review of Architecture and the Built Environment

Link to web site

"On 25th March 2013, Culture and Creative Industries Minister Ed Vaizey launched a new independent review of architecture and the built environment today, to be undertaken by the world-renowned architect Sir Terry Farrell CBE.

"The review will look at four main areas:
  1. Understanding the Government’s role in promoting design quality in architecture and the built environment;
  2. The economic benefits of architecture – maximising the UK’s growth potential;
  3. Cultural heritage and the built environment; and
  4. Promoting education, outreach, and skills.
"The intention of the review will be to engage the sector in helping the Department for Culture, Media and Sport develop its thinking about the role for Government in the achievement of high-quality design, to better influence and shape policy across government.

"Ed Vaizey said:
"Good design builds communities, creates quality of life, and makes places better for people to live, work and play in. I want to make sure we’re doing all we can to recognise the importance of architecture and reap the benefits of good design and I’m delighted Sir Terry Farrell has agreed to undertake this independent review.

I now urge all those within the architecture and built environment industry to make sure they get involved and contribute their views."

"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."

28 May:

"This Call for Evidence is to inform the independent Farrell Review of Architecture and the Built Environment, which relates to England.

"As announced at its launch on 25 March, the purpose of the review is to inform the Department for Culture, Media and Sport’s approach to its role within government of promoting high standards of design in the built environment. This is so that DCMS can continue to influence and shape policy across government, not least because the public sector is a major client/funder of buildings.

"The expert panel headed by Sir Terry Farrell welcomes submissions from any interested parties on the themes within the scope of this review. Included are some suggested questions for you to help guide your responses. Please ensure these stay within the four themes as outlined."
