BIENNALE ARCHITECTURE

t3 wtc


La Biennale di Venezia has announced that Richard George Rogers, Baron Rogers of Riverside will be awarded the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achivement Award.

The British architect is well known for his
modernist and functionalist designs. He was born in Florence, Italy in 1933 and attended the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London, before graduating from Yale University in 1962.
At Yale he met
Norman Foster and on returning to England he set up architectural practice as Team 4 with Foster and their respective wives Su Rogers and Wendy Cheesman. They quickly earned a reputation for high-tech industrial design.
In 1967 the practice split up, and Lord Rogers joined
Renzo Piano winning the design for the Pompidou Centre in 1971. This building established Lord Rogers' characteristic style in which most of the building services (water, heating ducts, and stairs) were exposed on the exterior to leave uncluttered internal spaces. Today the building is a highly admired Paris landmark, but at the time critics were more mixed, dubbing the new inside-out style "Bowellism".
His most famous works include:

He was awarded the RIBA Royal Gold Medal in 1985. Lord Rogers was one of the most vocal advocates of the Millennium Dome project and his reputation has suffered as a result. Though still regarded as one of the major international practices it is notable that since the Dome he has secured fewer landmark projects.
After several years of development the ambitious Rogers
Masterplan for the regeneration of Newcastle-upon-Tyne was rejected. Lord Rogers has been active politically as a Labour life peer and in 2000 wrote the UK government's Towards an Urban Renaissance, white paper. Lord Rogers is current chairman of the Greater London Authority panel for Architecture and Urbanism.
Rogers has been chosen as the architect of Tower 3 of the new
World Trade Center in New York City, replacing the old World Trade Center, which had been destroyed in the September 11 attacks. His old classmate and contemporary Norman Foster is also designing a new WTC tower.
