British architect Richard Rogers dies at age 88

Richard Rogers,the lauded British architect also the Pompidou Center in Paris and later designed London’s Millennium Dome has died. He is 88.

He was one of the most distinctive architects of his generation, with an architectural style that was both instantly recognizable and highly adaptable.

Rogers was born in Florence, Italy in 1933 to an Anglo-Italian family. The family moved to Britain in 1939.

 

After attending the Architectural Association in London, Rogers studied in the United States at Yale University, where he befriended fellow British architect Norman Foster.

 

In 1963, after graduating, the two men joined forces with Rogers’ then-wife, Su Rogers, and Wendy Cheesman, who Foster would marry in 1964, to form the Team 4 architectural firm.

 


The quartet only stayed together for four years, but in that time, they made an indelible mark on British architecture, becoming the leading names in what became known as Britain’s high-tech architecture style.

 


In 2007, Rogers’ firm was renamed Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners to reflect the contributions of fellow architects Graham Stirk and Ivan Harbour.

 

The firm has left its stamp on cities around the world, designing avant-garde buildings including the new 3 World Trade Center in New York.

 

The European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France, and the Millennium Dome in London.

 


Rogers’ firm was awarded the Royal Institute of British Architects’ Stirling Prize in 2006, for the Terminal 4 structure at Madrid’s Barajas International Airport, and again in 2009, for London’s Maggie’s Centre, a cancer care facility.

 


The architect also received the Pritzker Prize — popularly known as the Nobel Prize of architecture — in 2007.

 


Rogers was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1991. In 1996, he was made a life peer for the Labour Party and created Baron Rogers of Riverside.
