Richard Rogers (°Firenze, July 23, 1933) is a British architect, who won the Pritzkerprize in 2007.
He studied at the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London, then obtained a master’s degree at Yale University (1962). In 1971 he started the Piano & Rogers company with Renzo Piano, which designed the Center Pompidou in Paris.
In 1967 Rogers and Foster parted ways, but Rogers continued to work with Su Rogers, with John Young and Laurie Abbott.
Rogers then joined forces with Italian architect Renzo Piano, a partnership that paid off. His career took a leap forward when, together with Piano, he won the design competition for the Center Pompidou in July 1971, together with a team from Ove Arup & Partners including Irish engineer Peter Rice.
