This volume, accompanying the exhibition Richard Rogers RA: Inside Out, at the Royal Academy of Arts, explores the origins of and influences on Rogers's thinking, and explains how his wide-ranging interests inform his design process. Featuring contributions from major figures from the worlds of politics, fine art, social policy, architecture and urban design, as well as an exclusive interview with Richard Rogers by the exhibitions curator Jeremy Melvin, this book shows why his work continues to be fresh, challenging and inventive and how breaking new ground in architecture impacts the wider cultural and social spheres.
