Exclusive podcast with Richard Rogers to commemorate 30 years of The Pompidou Centre in Paris
As part of its 30th anniversary celebrations, The Pompidou Centre is to pay tribute to Richard Rogers, who with Renzo Piano was responsible for the design of the building.
The exhibition Richard Rogers & Architects presents a detailed survey of the work of Richard Rogers and his partners over the last 40 years. Running from 21 November 2007 until 3 March 2008, the exhibiton starts with his early projects in the 1960s and continues to look at the design of the Pompidou Centre in the 1970s and his extensive work with Richard Rogers Partnership (now Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners).
The exhibition opens with a 30 metre wall-mounted timeline, showing Rogers' output in chronological sequence. Each project is respresented by a photograph or drawing, offering an insight into 40 years of architectural practice and theory. At the end of this timeline, a filmed interview in which Rogers and his partners discuss their work and influences is shown.
The podcast with Richard Rogers will be posted on Friday 23 November click here to listen
