RICHARD ROGERS & ARCHITECTS: From the House to the City

RICHARD ROGERS ET AL    Book Number: 85292    Product format: Hardback

Richard Rogers has been described as the last humanist, in recognition of his determination to create public spaces that encompass the diversity and complexity of the contemporary world. This outstanding book examines the lifetime's work of Rogers and those with whom he has worked, from his early career in the late 60s to the present day as senior partner of Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners. His first big commission, the one which established his name, was his collaboration with Renzo Piano on the design of the Pompidou Centre (1971-7) and since then he has been involved in many high profile projects in the UK including Lloyds of London, the Millennium Dome, the Welsh National Assembly Building, the Channel 4 HQ, 88 Wood Street EC2, Lloyd's Shipping Register, Heathrow Terminal 5, One Hyde Park, Canary Wharf (South), and the Leadenhall Building (aka the Cheesegrater) amongst others and very many equally prestigious projects all over the world. He and his associates are famed for the use of new materials and innovative techniques to create structures that are lightweight, transparent and environmentally friendly, typically employing a seductive interplay of light and shadow and simplicity of design. In this luxury tome the projects undertaken by Rogers and his associates down the years are presented by the architectural themes that define his work: transparent, lightweight, green, urban, public, together with sections on early work and works in progress, most of which are now complete. Superb colour photography throughout as well as fascinating technical drawings and early draughts of plans and a detailed history of each project. A celebration of a modern architectural visionary. 280pp, 8¼"×10½".
