Richard Rogers’ Royal Academy show takes to the streets of London as Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners buildings become exhibits.
The Royal Academy of Arts is currently hosting an exhibition to mark the 80th birthday of acclaimed architect Richard Rogers and his long and successful career. Richard Rogers RA: Inside Out examines his social, political and cultural infl uences and their connection to his architecture. Previously unseen original material, drawings and personal items present a unique insight into the thinking behind one of the world’s most renowned architects. To complement the exhibition the London buildings by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners have been captioned as if they were an exhibit in the show.
Exhibition captions have sprung up all over London from as far West as Heathrow Terminal 5 to the O2 in Greenwich and many buildings in between. Projects range from the buildings that made Rogers a household name, such as Lloyd’s of London, to some of the newest by the practice still under construction, like the British Museum World Conservation and Exhibitions Centre. The highest concentration of captions can be found in the City of London and they will inform passersby and occupiers alike.
Buildings that have been captioned are: Lloyd’s of London, Lloyds Register, 88 Wood Street, The Leadenhall Building, Tower Bridge House, The O2, Mossbourne Community
Academy, Maggie’s London, NEO Bankside, Riverlight, The British Museum World Conservation and Exhibitions Centre, Heathrow Terminal 5 and Chiswick Business Park.
