Overview

Richard Rogers is one of the most influential and respected contemporary architects. Well known as an exponent of good architecture in his built work, he is equally famous for promoting architectural quality and campaigning for the revival of the modern city.

This first volume, covering the period 1961-86, features all of Rogers's early work, including projects from Yale, with Norman Foster and Team 4, his partnerships with Su Rogers and Renzo Piano, through to the ethos and philosophy of his present practice, the Richard Rogers Partnership. The author's interviews with key figures build up a portrait of the teamwork involved in producing the buildings of Rogers's expansive career. Each project, from Creek Vean in Cornwall of 1966, through the Rogers/Piano collaboration at the Pompidou Centre, Paris of 1971-7, to Lloyd's of London of 1978-86, is examined in detail and presented vividly with much new visual material from the practice's archives. A complete list of works is included, together with a timeline spanning Rogers's career, which details key formative events and allows interesting insights into both his thinking and that of the public.
