Born in Florence, Italy, Rogers trained at the Architectural Association in London and earned his master’s degree in architecture from Yale University. There his path crossed with a number of other design giants: Paul Rudolph, who headed the architecture school; James Stirling, who taught Rogers; and Norman Foster, a fellow student with whom he opened a practice after the pair graduated and returned to England.

Although Rogers’s recent works, such as London’s Millennium Dome, in 2000, and Terminal 4 at the Madrid Barajas Airport, which opened in 2005, continue to display his flair for showcasing the purely functional elements of a building, he has increasingly concerned himself with larger scales—both urban and global. “Cities are where life is most precarious; they are also where we have the greatest tangible opportunity for improvement, intervention, and change,” he said in a 1995 lecture.

Rogers earned a reputation as a high-tech iconoclast with the 1977 completion of the Pompidou Center, with its exposed skeleton of brightly colored tubes for mechanical systems.

Asked to describe his own stylistic signature, Rogers said he was recognized for "celebrating the components and the structure."
"That's how we get rhythm and poetry out of it," he said. He added that he would like to be known for "buildings which are full of light, which are light in weight, which are flexible, which have low energy, which are what we call legible. You can read how the building is put together."Info source: marvelousarchitectures.blogspot.com
