Well known as an exponent of good architecture in his own work, Richard Rogers 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 Rogerss early work 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 authors interviews with key figures build up a portrait of the teamwork involved in producing the buildings of Rogerss 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 Lloyds of London (1978--86), is examined in detail and presented vividly with much new visual material from the practices archives. A complete list of works from the period is included.
