Written by the well-known architectural critic Kenneth Powell, this new monograph provides a richly illustrated overview and an ideal introduction to the works of Richard Roger's internationally renowned office. Founded in 1977, with offices in London, Barcelona and Tokyo, RRP has a long-established reputation for high-tech and energy-efficient designs.

Famous as the architects of the Centre Pompidou in Paris (together with Renzo Piano), and for the iconic Lloyd's of London, the practice's recent projects include the transformation of the Las Arenas bullring in Barcelona, the new Library of Birmingham, Heathrow Airport's Terminal 5 and Madrid's Barajas Airport expansion.

This comprehensive survey also covers RRP's substantial masterplanning projects, such as the Lu Jia Zui district in Shanghai and the masterplan for the Greenwich Peninsula in London.
