Maintaining its longstanding focus on the world’s great architecture, Cersaie has announced that the award-winning British architect and designer Lord Richard Rogers, 2007 Pritzker Architecture Prize Laureate, will give the 2018 Keynote Lecture. The event will be held on Tuesday 25th September in Palazzo dei Congressi at BolognaFiere following an introduction by architecture historian Francesco Dal Co.
Lord Rogers studied at the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London and at Yale University. After his initial experience with Team 4, the practice he set up together with his first wife Su Rogers and the husband-and-wife team Wendy and Norman Foster, he began a collaboration with Renzo Piano in 1969. In 1971, Piano + Rogers, together with Peter Rice, Gianfranco Franchini and Su Rogers, won the international competition for the Centre Georges Pompidou in the Beaubourg area of Paris, creating one of the most iconic of all contemporary museum buildings. He founded the Richard Rogers Partnership in 1977 and in 2007 renamed the practice Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP) to reflect Graham Stirk and Ivan Harbour’s contribution to the practice. Over the past forty years, RSHP has attracted critical acclaim and awards with built projects across Europe, the America, Asia and Australia.
Lord Rogers’ best known works besides the Centre Pompidou include the Lloyd’s of London insurance building in London, the European Court of Human Rights building in Strasbourg, the Daimler Complex in Potsdamer Platz in Berlin, the Antwerp Law Courts, the Senedd in Cardiff, the Millennium Dome in London, Madrid-Barajas Airport Terminal 4 and London Heathrow Terminal 5.
In addition to the prestigious Pritzker Award received in 2007, Richard Rogers is also the recipient of the RIBA Gold Medal in 1985 and winner of the Thomas Jefferson Memorial Foundation Medal. He won the Praemium Imperiale Prize for Architecture in 2000, the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement at the Venice Biennale in 2006 and the Tau Sigma Delta Gold Medal. The practice received the Stirling Prize in 2006 for the Madrid Barajas Airport Terminal 4 and in 2009 for the Maggie’s Centre in London.
