Richard Rogers is an internationally respected architect, responsible for many landmark buildings around the world, and a passionate advocate of architectural quality in the built environment.
This second volume of the Complete Works looks at the further work of the Richard Rogers Partnership during the dramatic economic and political changes of the boom-bust years between 1987 and 1993. It features many projects and competitions, such as the Tomigaya Exhibition Building in Tokyo, alongside spectacular buildings that have come to fruition towards the end of the century, such as the Daimler-Chrysler buildings at Potsdamerplatz, Berlin, and the Bordeaux Law Courts. Kenneth Powell has spoken to the key figures involved with each of the projects and writes in-depth about the collaborative spirit of the practice. the increasing need for low-energy buildings and the development of major urban interventions and city planning.
