Over some three decades the Richard Rogers Partnership has attracted critical acclaim and dozens of prestigious international awards and honours. This book takes a look at the extraordinary range of work by this firm, from the celebrated schemes of the 1970s and '80s, such as the Centre Pompidou and the Lloyd's of London building, to projects as diverse as Chiswick Park and the Minamiyamashiro Elementary School. A total of 16 schemes are outlined in this handy-sized book, all serving to demonstrate such essential RRP themes as flexibility and modernity. With good photography, clear prose and thumbnail plans for all projects, it makes an excellent primer or ready reference concerning the work of an important practice.
