Architect Richard Rogers to Retire

Richard Rogers, one of Britain’s greatest living architects, is to retire from the architecture practice he founded 43 years ago.

Key buildings include the Lloyd’s building in London, the Pompidou Centre in Paris and the Millennium Dome, now the O2 arena.

Rogers, 87, who was given a peerage by Tony Blair, will have his name removed from the firm of Rogers, Stirk, Harbour + Partners (RSHP) in the coming months as part of the architecture practice’s constitution.

The architect told The Guardian, ‘I am going to retire in a short time’.

The quality of its designs has been recognised with some of architecture’s highest awards, including two RIBA Stirling Prizes, one in 2006 for Terminal 4, Madrid Barajas Airport and the other in 2009 for Maggie’s West London Centre.

Since the early days of the Lloyd’s building in the 1970s the practice has produced innovative, beautiful, sustainable, and practical architecture which creatively solves problems for clients. A focus on providing flexible spaces separated from service elements means RSHP’s buildings are adaptable and resilient in a world where technology is changing rapidly.

Richard Rogers Background

RSHP was founded in 2007, replacing the Richard Rogers Partnership.

Richard Rogers made his name with the Pompidou Centre in Paris (working with Renzo Piano). His reputation for exuberant hi-tech architecture was cemented with Lloyd’s of London – expressing services and structure on the outside of the building in a similar method to the Pompidou – and latterly the Millennium Dome, also London. A recent major design was the controversial Chelsea Barracks, now abandoned. Current major designs by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners include One Hyde Park, British Museum Expansion and 122 Leadenhall Street (nicknamed ‘The Cheesegrater’).
