Richard Rogers: Architecture of the Future

  • Comment

By Kenneth Powell, edited by Robert Torday.

Birkhäuser, 2006.20pp, £29

While the fullest accounts of Richard Rogers' architecture are found in the Collected Works published by Phaidon - Volume Three is due in June - this Birkhäuser book provides a useful overview of his career since Team 4 days, with illustrations and relatively brief descriptions of 110 projects.

And as these days the question of succession must surely preoccupy RRP directors, it's interesting to see younger directors like Graham Stirk, Ivan Harbour and Mark Darbon emerge from the shadows of their ennobled front-man to take credit for the jobs they ran and provide the pull-out quotes for them.

Pictured is one of several big urban schemes in the book that never came to fruition - the masterplan for redeveloping Potsdamer Platz, Berlin.
