Gallery: Some of Richard Rogers’ greatest buildings
Richard Rogers has won the Stirling Prize twice - for Barajas Airport terminal in Madrid and for London’s first Maggie’s cancer care centre - but his most famous buildings are undoubtedly the Pompidou Centre in Paris and the Lloyds Building in London.
Richard Rogers was also the author of the Millennium Dome - which was initially ridiculed because of the contents, which were nothing to do with the practice, and the millennium-eve singalong led by the then prime minister Tony Blair. It is now the highly successful O2 concert venue.
Significant projects include the Welsh Senedd, the European Court of Human Rights and Bordeaux Law Courts, all characterised by a metaphorical and literal transparency.
Other high-profile schemes designed by the Richard Rogers Partnership and its current incarnation, Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners, include the Cheesegrater - where it is now based - the British Museum’s Stirling-shortlisted World Exhibitions and Conservation Centre, and 3 World Trade Centre in Manhattan which is part of the replacement development for the Twin Towers.
