Features Most Recent Built Work by Internationally Respected Architect.
Richard Rogers is head of an internationally respected architectural practice responsible for many landmark buildings around the world. He is best known for such pioneering buildings as the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris (with Renzo Piano), Lloyd's of London and the Millennium Dome, London. The Richard Rogers Partnership was recently commissioned to expand the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and design `Tower 3' on the site of the World Trade Center, both in New York City.

RICHARD ROGERS COMPLETE WORKS: VOLUME THREE by Kenneth Powell, features the work of the Richard Rogers Partnership from 1994-2005. The book features over 48 projects and competitions, looking at the most recent period of the practice. It is the third in a series of books on the practice, picking up from Volume Two that was published in 2001.

This book features the realized and unrealized projects of the last ten years, such as Greenwich Peninsula and the Millennium Dome, London, a school near Kyoto, the transformation of a Barcelona bullring into a major entertainment complex, master plans for Wembley, London, and Florence, Madrid Barajas Airport and London Heathrow's Terminal 5, as well as a new library for Birmingham and London's first Maggie's Centre.

The book is prefaced with a general introduction about the office, which brings the story of the practice up to date. Essays by architecture critic Kenneth Powell examine the impact of Richard Rogers in the political arena, particularly his chairmanship of the Urban Task Force and his work as advisor on architecture and urbanism to the mayors of London and Barcelona. He also discusses the continuing growth of the practice both at home and abroad and the impact of a new generation of talent rising to the foreground.
