A Place for All People: Life, Architecture and the Fair Society

A Place for All People: Life, Architecture and the Fair Society
Rogers, Richard, 1933-

"Richard Rogers is one of the pre-eminent architects of his generation, whose approach to buildings is infused with his love of life, strong sense of social justice, and his playful aesthetic sense. From the Pompidou Centre in Paris to the Lloyds Building in the City of London, and from his inspirational Maggie's Centre for cancer sufferers to his Y:Cube housing for homeless young people, he has turned what architecture can do inside out. This book is both the engaging and inspirational story of Richard Rogers' life as an architect and simultaneously a book about creating a better society by creating better places to live. Ranging backwards and forwards over a long and creative life, and integrating relationships, projects, stories, collaborations and arguments with case studies, drawings and photographs Inside Out is a dazzling and inspiring book as original as its author."--Publisher's description.
