Richard Rogers has been honoured with the Coutts Lifetime Achievement Medal for his “significant and fundamental contributions to the design industry”
“He has played a leading role in designing buildings that made us think again about how we use them and how they function,” stated London Design Festival director Ben Evans. :His eminence is global, and he is part of a golden era of leading British architects who not only reshaped our city but also reshaped the world to some capacity.”
The award was given as part of the London Design Festival and announced in the newly completed Leadenhall Building on 16 September 2014.
