Boris Johnson adds Farrell and Parry to London design panel

London Mayor Boris Johnson has expanded his Design Advisory Panel to include architects Sir Terry Farrell and Eric Parry.

Johnson describes the pair as ‘highly experienced’, and says, ‘Their advice will be critical in my drive to make London a better place to work and visit.’

Farrell and Parry join former Royal Institute of British Architects president Sunand Prasad, English Heritage committee chairwoman Joyce Bridges and Argent group joint chief executive Roger Madelin on the panel.

The panel was set up in 2008 to advise on design strategies and projects in the capital.

Last week the Mayor also appointed Farrell, of Terry Farrell and Partners, as design advisor to the new Outer London Commission, overseeing the development of London’s suburbs. Farrell is also masterplanning the Thames Gateway.

Parry, of Eric Parry Architects, was behind the St Martin-in-the-Fields restoration project and 5 Aldermanbury Square in the City of London, which was nominated for this year’s Stirling Prize.

The deputy chairman of Transport for London, Daniel Moylan, will replace deputy mayor Sir Simon Milton as chairman of the panel from December.
