About the book

This second volume of the complete works of Richard Rogers examines the work of the Richard Rogers Partnership from 1987 to 1992, picking up from the highly acclaimed Volume 1 which was first published in 1999.

Following the completion of the Lloyd's Building came expansion for the firm, a new office in Tokyo, and a large number of competitions and schemes, much of which remains unbuilt. Over 50 projects are featured in the book, including competition schemes for Terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport and the Tokyo International Forum, and buildings such as Channel 4 headquarters, the Strasbourg Court of Human Rights, 88 Wood Street and the Bordeaux Law Courts. In a series of insightful essays, Kenneth Powell analyses 'Continuity and Expansion' within the Rogers office, discusses different topical subjects essential to the architecture - such as 'Low-Energy Buildings', 'Masterplanning and the City' - and concludes with a rigorous review of Rogers' work in more recent years.
