Richard Rogers & David Bowie
Italian-British architect Richard Rogers achieved recognition from music legend David Bowie back in 1995, in the song “Thru’ these Architect’s Eyes”.

In the first verse, he namedrops both the late Philip Johnson and Richard Rogers:

“And stomping along on this big Philip Johnson/Is delay just wasting my time/Looking across at Richard Rogers/Scheming dreams to blow both their minds.”

“Thru’ These Architect’s Eyes” is the 17th track on David Bowie’s concept album, Outside, for which the musician reunited with producer Brian Eno.

Richard Rogers – Four Key Buildings by the Architect

We feature four key projects by this celebrated London-based architect: a classic Richard Rogers building The Pompidou Centre in Paris, a recent UK project, the Glasgow Bridge, the Millennium Dome, London and the Lloyds Building London.

The first major Richard Rogers building, completed with celebrated Italian architect, Renzo Piano:

Centre George Pompidou / Pompidou Centre
Rue Beaubourg, Paris IVe, France
1976

Pompidou Centre
Pompidou Building, Paris: ducts image © adrian welch

Radical for its time with service ducts expressed on the exterior and all structure glamourised and articulated externally where possible. The architectural realisation of some Archigram ideas, with escalators providing dynamism to the main west facade. Half of the plot was given over to a rectilinear square which again added dynamism to the building. Also known as the Beaubourg Centre or simply The Pompidou.

Richard Rogers – Background on the Architect

Richard Rogers:
British architect Richard Rogers

Richard was a key member of the British Hi-Tech movement alongside Norman Foster. With Norman Foster and James Stirling, Richard Rogers was often portrayed in the Eighties as one of three dominant British architects working across the globe. Other Hi-Tech architects were Nicholas Grimshaw (originally with Terry Farrell), Chris Wilkinson and Richard Horden.

Richard Rogers’ Welsh Assembly has often been compared to the Scottish Parliament Building but despite controversies is much cheaper and smaller.
