Alexandra Palace

In 2012-2013 Farrells were involved in masterplanning a revival of Alexandra Palace as part of a Heritage Lottery Fund bid. Alexandra Palace is a Victorian Grade II listed entertainment venue which was initially conceived of in 1859 as 'The Palace of the People.'

In 2012 it was reported that over half the building was derelict or out of use. The masterplan had distinctive objectives: to connect the edge of the building with the surrounding parkland, to make the building fully accessible by enhancing connectivity across the building from east to west, and from the south entrance. This involved improved access through Palm Court, West Hall, Great Hall, Ice Skating Rink, BBC Wing and Theatre. Finally, 3 key regeneration projects for distinct segments of the building were identified (a new hotel, upgrading the great hall, and opening up the derelict spaces, such as the theatre and the BBC wing). A public consultation process was included in development of the masterplan to rank the items of revival in terms of importance.

21st Century Collection

  • 21st C. Coll.
  • Book Collection
  • 2000 - 2022

The 21st Century Collection is newly-established but, as it expands, will contain books on miscellaneous subjects from varied sources which were published 2000-2099. Currently, these books are likely to be issued by private presses, in limited print-runs, relate to other collections in Special Collections, have interesting or significant provenance, or be particularly valuable due to them being fine or extra-illustrated copies. One example is Bajac, Q. L'image révélée: l'invention de la photoggraphie (2001) which reproduces a Lerebours daguerreotype, Port Ripetta, à Rome, from our holdings on page 112.
