Sir Terry Farrell, CBE, RIBA, FRSA, FCSD, MRTPI (born 1939) is a leading English architect. His typical style is a combination of high tech and post-modernism. His buildings frequently include jokes that are a hallmark of post-modernism: in the TV-am building, the roof features painted egg cups, a reference not only to the building being used for breakfast TV, but also performing the function that urns would on a classical building.

Farrell was born in Sale, Cheshire. As a youth he moved to Newcastle upon Tyne, where he attended St Cuthbert's High School. He graduated with a first class degree from University of Newcastle School of Architecture and founded his first practice in 1965.
