Sir Richard Rogers

Sir Richard George Rogers was born in 1933 in Florence. He is a British architect known for his modernist and functionalist designs.
Before he graduated from Yale School of Architecture in 1962, he attended the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London.
He freelanced with Norman Foster and their girlfriends under the name Team Four. In 1967 Rogers joined Renzo Piano. When he won the design competition for the Pompidou Centre with Piano and Rice in 1971, his career went forward. This building established Rogers's trademark of exposing most of the building's services. In 1976, Rogers established the Richard Rogers Partnership. This became Rogers Stirk Harbour and Partners in 2007. The firm has offices in London, Barcelona, Madrid, and Tokyo. In 2000 he wrote the UK government's white paper, Towards an Urban Renaissance. Rogers is currently chair of the Greater London Authority panel for Architecture and Urbanism. Rogers has been chosen as the architect of Tower 3 of the new World Trade Centre in New York City, replacing the old World Trade Centre.


Knighted in 1991 by the Queen.
RIBA Royal Gold Medal in 1985.
Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement at the 10th Mostra di Architettura di Venezia.
Stirling Prize for Terminal 4 of Barajas Airport in 2006.
