Richard Rogers Family
Richard Rogers was born in Florence in 1933 into an Anglo-Italian family. His father, William Nino Rogers (1906–1993), was the cousin of Italian architect Ernesto Nathan Rogers. His ancestors moved from Sunderland to Venice in about 1800, later settling in Trieste, Milan and Florence. In 1939 William Nino Rogers decided to come back to England.Upon moving to England, Richard Rogers went to St John’s School, Leatherhead. Rogers did not excel academically, which made him believe that he was “stupid because he could not read or memorize his school work”and as a consequence he stated that he became “very depressed”.
He wasn’t able to read until the age of 11, and it was not until after he had his first child that he realised that he was dyslexic.After leaving St Johns School, he undertook a foundation course at Epsom School of Art before going into National Service between 1951 and 1953.He then attended the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London, where he gained the Architectural Association’s Diploma (AA Dipl) from 1954 until 1959, subsequently graduating with a master’s degree (M Arch) from the Yale School of Architecture in 1962 on a Fulbright Scholarship.While studying at Yale, Rogers met fellow architecture student Norman Foster and planning student Su Brumwell.

Richard Rogers Projects
After leaving Yale he joined Skidmore, Owings & Merrill in New York.On returning to England in 1963, he, Norman Foster and Brumwell set up architectural practice as Team 4 with Wendy Cheesman .Rogers and Foster earned a reputation for what was later termed by the media high-tech architecture.
By 1967, Team 4 had split up, but Rogers continued to collaborate with Su Rogers, along with John Young and Laurie Abbott.In early 1968 he was commissioned to design a house and studio for Humphrey Spender near Maldon, Essex, a glass cube framed with I-beams. He continued to develop his ideas of prefabrication and structural simplicity to design a Wimbledon house for his parents. This was based on ideas from his conceptual Zip-Up House,such as the use of standardized components based on refrigerator panels to make energy-efficient buildings.
Rogers subsequently joined forces with Italian architect Renzo Piano, a partnership that was to prove fruitful. His career leapt forward when he, Piano and Gianfranco Franchini won the design competition for the Pompidou Centre in July 1971, alongside a team from Ove Arup that included Irish engineer Peter Rice.After working with Piano, Rogers established the Richard Rogers Partnership along with Marco Goldschmied, Mike Davies, and John Young in 1977.This became Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners in 2007. The firm maintains offices in London, Shanghai, and Sydney.
Rogers devoted much of his later career to wider issues surrounding architecture, urbanism, sustainability, and the ways in which cities are used. One early illustration of his thinking was an exhibition at the Royal Academy in 1986, entitled “London As It Could Be”, which also featured the work of James Stirling and Rogers’ former partner Norman Foster. This exhibition made public a series of proposals for transforming a large area of central London, subsequently dismissed as impractical by the city’s authorities.In 1995, he became the first architect to deliver the BBC’s annual Reith Lectures.
Some of Rogers’s recent plans have failed to get off the ground. The practice was appointed to design the replacement to the Central Library in the Eastside of Birmingham; however, his plan was shelved for financial reasons. City Park Gate, the area adjacent to the land the library would have stood on, is now being designed by Ken Shuttleworth’s Make Architects. Rogers resigned his directorship of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners on 30 June 2020.The Rogers name will be removed from the practice by 2022 as the founding constitution requires.
