One of the world's most distinguished and dynamic architects, Richard Rogers RA is also a powerful and effective advocate for the role of architecture and urban design in improving everyday lives. Renowned for an 'inside out' style that challenges how we see and use buildings, Roger's unique approach to architectural design has generated such international landmarks as the Centre Pompidou in Paris and the Lloyd's Building on London. Packed with illustrations, this new book explores the origins of Roger's thinking and the wide-ranging interests that inform his design process. Featuring contributions from colleagues and critics as well as an exclusive interview with Rogers himself the book shows why his work continues to be fresh, challenging and innovative and how breaking new ground in architecture has a profound impact on wider social and cultural fields.
