Inside Out: Richard Rogers at the Royal Academy

Inside Out, the major retrospective of work by Richard Rogers, was launched at the Royal Academy last night (16 July)

Previously unseen material includes Rogers’ 1958 school report at the Architectural Association, which stated that the starchitect had ‘a genuine interest and a feeling for architecture but sorely lacks the intellectual equipment to translate these feelings into sound building’.

Guests included Marco Goldschmied, Charles Jencks, Joseph Rykwert, David Adjaye, Eva Jiricna, Nick Serota, Alan Yentob and Peter Cook.

Coinciding with Rogers’ 80th birthday, the exhibition explores the social and political influences on the architect’s work.

The exhibition covers key stages in Rogers’ life such as the influence of his Italian family, his experience of wartime Britain and his studies at the Architectural Association and Yale as well as his focus on the social impact of architecture.

The exhibition includes sketches and photographs of projects such as the Lloyds Building, the Pompidou Centre in Paris, Terminal 4 at Barajas Airport in Madrid and the National Assembly for Wales in Cardiff.
