Lloyds to Coin Street
Date: Tuesday 12 January 1982
Exploring the idea of urban transparency, concentrating on the gap between buildings and the material properties of glass, Richard Rogers talks about the River Thames and the potential for transforming public space in London through freeing the ground of offices to create continuous space. One of Britain's most influential and powerful architects, Richard Rogers studied at the AA before graduating from Yale University. He founded the Richard Rogers Partnership in 1977 and is best known for such pioneering buildings as the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris (with Renzo Piano); the Lloyds Building, London; the European Court of Human Rights, Strasbourg; and the Millennium Dome, London.
