Photos, sketches, renderings, and models

Pritzker-prize winning architect Richard Rogers is known for grand yet transparent buildings with bright, light-filled spaces and flexible floor plans. In this photo gallery you will find pictures of his buildings and copies of some of his architectural renderings.

The Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris (1971-1977) revolutionized museum design and changed the careers of two future Pritzker Laureates.

Museums of the past had been elite monuments. In contrast, the Pompidou was designed as a busy center for social activities and cultural exchange.

With support beams, duct work, and other functional elements placed on the exterior of the building, Centre Pompidou in Paris appears to be turned inside out, revealing its inner workings. Centre Pompidou is often cited as a landmark example of High-Tech Architecture.

Millennium Dome in Greenwich, England

Pritzker-prize winning architect Richard Rogers is known for grand yet transparent buildings with bright, light-filled spaces and flexible floor plans.

The 1999 Millennium Dome was built to celebrate the new millennium. Its location in Greenwich near London is very appropriate as much of the world measures time from the location; Greenwich Mean Time or GMT is the starting time zone for time zones around the world.

Now called The O2 Arena, the dome was supposed to be a temporary structure, like many other buildings designed as tensile architecture. The fabric structure is more sturdy than developers believed, and today the arena is part of the The O2 entertainment district of London.
