The Man Behind The Buildings

The Law Courts in Bordeaux, Pompidou Centre in Paris, and Lloyd's of London may be hundreds of miles apart, and have very different purposes, there is one thing that they all have in common. They were designed by Richard Rogers.
Rogers is considered one of the most pioneering architects of the twentieth century, having created innovative buildings across the globe.
Exploring the influences of these radical designs, The Royal Academy of Arts presents the Inside Out exhibition. Open until the 13th October, you will discover the political, social, and ethical concerns that shaped his work. There will be previously unseen archival material, drawings, and personal items. As well as the functionality of the building, Roger's designs are also based on public interest, so at the end of the exhibition you will be invited to take part in discussions and workshops, in which you can share your opinion and give feedback.
