Farrell Centre

Newcastle & Gateshead

The Farrell Centre is a vital new platform for debating the future of architecture and planning, ensuring that everyone has a voice in this critical conversation.

Based on the edge of the Newcastle University campus in the historic Grade II-listed Claremont Buildings, the Farrell Centre opened in April 2023 after a major renovation and conversion of the building by SPACE and Elliott Architects.

The centre offers the opportunity to visit exhibitions, explore the built environment in our Urban Rooms, and participate in a wide range of talks, workshops and forums. It explores the role of architecture and cities in shaping contemporary life through exhibitions, workshops, talks, essays, videos and podcasts.
