Rogers MD Marco Goldschmied declares retirement rumours true

  • Comment

Marco Goldschmied has confirmed that he has left the Richard Rogers Partnership (RRP). The firm's former managing director has told the AJ that he retired from the practice on 30 June.

Goldschmied, 60, also insisted that there is 'absolutely no chance' that he would consider setting up his own practice, independently of RRP.

Instead, he said he would be pursuing other interests outside architecture, including charity work with Amnesty International and the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust.

However, the past president of the RIBA refused to rule out joining CABE as a chairman. 'I am certainly considering the role, but the advert for the position has not even come out yet, so I don't want to be seen to be jumping the gun, ' he said.

'CABE has an extremely important role at the moment and it would be an exciting opportunity to take it on.'

Goldschmied admitted he had been pondering his role within RRP for 'quite some time'. 'This has obviously been on the cards, ' he said. 'What with reaching 60, I have been thinking quite a lot about my position.

'I did much of my most interesting work when I was a lot younger and since then I have been involved with many other things, such as the RIBA, ' he added.
