Widely regarded as one of the UK’s most attractive cities thanks to its handsome Georgian, Victorian and neoclassical buildings, it should come as no surprise that Newcastle now has its very own centre for architecture and urban design.

The Farrell Centre is located in a typically beautiful Victorian building on the corner of Barras Bridge and Claremont Road within Newcastle University’s campus, with visitors arriving via Eldon Place, and over its three floors the centre will combine a gallery space with research facilities, provide a community hub and offer a broad variety of events and activities designed to engage visitors with the crucial roles architecture and planning play in a contemporary world.

Designed to challenge and engage, through a series of temporary exhibitions, public talks and debates, as well as producing workshops, digital projects and more, The Farrell Centre opens on Saturday 22nd April with its inaugural exhibition, More With Less: Reimagining Architecture For A Changing World, which looks at the challenges architecture faces in a climate emergency, and which runs until Sunday 10th September.
