Well known as an exponent of good architecture in his own work, Sir Richard Rogers (b.1933) is equally famous for promoting architectural quality and campaigning for the revival of the modern city. This first volume, covering the period 1961-88, features all of Rogers' early work with Norman Foster and Team 4, and his partnerships with Su Rogers and Renzo Piano, and 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' expansive career. Each project, from Creek Vean in Cornwall (1966), through the Rogers and Piano collaboration at the Pompidou Centre in Paris (1971-7), to Lloyd's of London (1978-86), is examined in detail and presented vividly with much new visual material from the practice's own archives. A complete list of works from the period is included, which reveals the developing yet distinctive scope of Rogers' work in this crucial phase of his career.Biografía del autor:
