Synopsis

Richard Rogers Inside Out by Ricky Burdett, Michael Craig-Martin, Michael Heseltine, Jeremy Melvin

Richard Rogers is one of the worlds most distinguished architects, as well as a powerful and effective advocate for the role of architecture and urban design in improving everyday lives. Famous for his inside out architectural style, Rogers' unique approach to architectural design has generated such landmarks as the Pompidou Centre in Paris and the Lloyds building in London. This volume, accompanying the exhibition Richard Rogers RA: Inside Out, at the Royal Academy of Arts, explores the origins of and influences on Rogerss thinking, and explains how his wide-ranging interests inform his design process. Featuring contributions from major figures from the worlds of politics, fine art, social policy, architecture and urban design, as well as an exclusive interview with Richard Rogers by the exhibitions curator Jeremy Melvin, this book shows why his work continues to be fresh, challenging and inventive and how breaking new ground in architecture impacts on wider social and cultural fields.
