Richard Rogers reflects on his legacy and tells the stories behind his key buildings | Dezeen

Renowned British architect Richard Rogers, who died on Saturday, reflected on his legacy and told the stories behind his Centre Pompidou in Paris and Lloyd’s building in London in this video interview filmed by Dezeen in 2013.

In the short film, the Pritzker Prize-winning architect discusses his practice Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, his key influences and the ups and downs of a career that spanned half a century.

The interview was filmed at RSH+P’s offices in London in 2013 ahead of the opening of Inside Out, a retrospective exhibition of his work at the Royal Academy in London.

At the time, Dezeen published a series of videos in which the architect spoke about his key projects.

This edit focuses on two early projects that helped to launch Rogers’ career: the 1977 Centre Pompidou in Paris and the 1986 Lloyd’s building in London.
