The Pritzker Prize to Richard Rogers
April 3, 2007
The 2007 Pritzker Prize for architecture has been awarded to Richard Rogers. Only a few months after the "Leone d’Oro alla Carriera" that he was assigned by the Venice Biennial, Rogers thus obtains the most important acknowledgement in the field of architecture.
Born in Florence in 1933, nephew of Ernesto Nathan Rogers, the British architect attained renown while still young by winning, with Renzo Piano, the competition for the construction of the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris (better known as Beaubourg, in the photo), one of the most significant buildings of the 20th century.
In the course of his career, he has constructed many major buildings, such as Lloyd’s and the Millennium Dome, both in London, which have constantly qualified him as one of the leading protagonists of contemporary architecture, indeed to the point that this acknowledgement seems somewhat late in coming.
