Richard Rogers, founder of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, is a pre-eminent architect of his generation, whose approach to buildings is infused with his enthusiasm for modernism, love of life and strong sense of social justice. From the Pompidou Centre in Paris to the Lloyds Building in the City of London, and from airports, to cancer care centres to low-cost homes, the buildings he and his partners have designed blend private use, public space and civic value.

In part inspired by his 2013 Royal Academy exhibition, A place for all people is a mosaic of life, projects and ideas for a better society. Ranging backwards and forwards over a long and creative life, and integrating relationships, projects, stories, collaborations and polemics, with case studies, drawings and photographs A place for all people is a dazzling and inspiring book as original as its author.

在他漫长而又充满创意的职业生涯中,罗杰斯向我们表明,一个建筑师的终生角色是成为一名合格的世界公民。 ——普利兹克奖评委会
罗杰斯设计了一系列引人入胜、活力四射、令人惊艳的独特建筑,它们将永远被人铭记。 ——《独立报》

Rogers’s wonderful new book is part memoir, part manifesto, a vision for how our cities could be more creative, beautiful and sustainable (Rohan Silva, Sunday Times)
Rogers has designed astonishing, engrossing, enlivening, original buildings by which the late-20th century will always be remembered (Independent)
In his profession, so in this book: Richard Rogers has brilliantly marked out a generous space where architecture and social justice meet. The master builder is rich in humane ideas and has an infectious delight in cities and their possibilities (Ian McEwan)
