Description

Richard Rogers is a pre-eminent architect of his generation, whose approach to buildings is infused with his enthusiasm for modernism, love of life and strong sense of social justice. From the Pompidou Centre in Paris to the Lloyds Building in the City of London, and from airports, to cancer care centres to low-cost homes, his buildings blend private use, public space and civic value.

Based on his 2013 Royal Academy exhibition, A Place for All People is a mosaic of life, projects and ideas for a better society. Ranging backwards and forwards over a long and creative life, and integrating relationships, projects, stories, collaborations and polemics, with case studies, drawings and photographs A Place for All People is a dazzling and inspiring book as original as its author.
