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.
