HASH(0x91839d38) out of 5 stars Rogers' work deserves a more substantial treatment 18 Feb. 2015

I would have liked to see a less elaborate presentation and more details of the buildings themselves. Some pages contain only one or two words (section headings) and steal space that could have been better used. In my opinion Rogers' work is outstanding and unique. This book reads almost as an exhibition catalog, and not a real examination of that work.
HASH(0x910be2f4) out of 5 stars Very uniquely organized book and is a nice addition to anyone's personally library. 18 Sept. 2014

Honestly, this book didn't grab me right off. But once I began reading it and combining the graphics, photos and sketches with the written dialogue I began really loving it. It very uniquely organized which carries over to the illustrations. I would buy this book again!//Chuck

HASH(0x911e081c) out of 5 stars Richard Rogers + Architects: From the House to the City (Fiell) 22 July 2010
By BlogOnBooks - Published on
If he did nothing else than to design and build France's Pompidou Center, Richard Rogers (and his collaborator on the project, Renzo Piano) would be immortalized in the architecture Hall of Fame. Fortunately for us, Rogers has a large and impressive body of work that pre-dates and continues on to today. His modern, lightweight, transparent architectural design has been responsible for both residential and industrial icons from the U.K. to Japan (i.e. the famed Kabuki-Cho) to France to Korea; from houses to airports to industrial complexes and a great deal in between.

`From the House to the City' both exemplifies and explains Rogers impact on contemporary industrial design, particularly in the UK, where his unique creations have taken the landscape of an old world European style city and transformed sections of it into a cutting-edge modern, steel and glass metropolis. (There is even an example of his work in the `new town' area near Milton Keynes in `Design for Manufacture Housing.') From the Millennium Dome to the fabulous columns of the Lloyds of London headquarters to the home of Britain's Channel 4 Television, the Canary Wharf project and beyond, Rogers and his team have assembled futuristic buildings that will no doubt remain landmarks for many years to come.

The book divides Rogers work across style functions (green, transparent, urban, systems, etc.) and explains his design and constructions in nearly poetic terms along the way. Amply filled with pictures, drawings and text, the book shows the sweeping magnitude of both Rogers' well-known existing work as well as giving equal weight (in terms of description and illustration) to a large number of works that are on the drawing board or yet to be built. Unlike any architecture book we've ever seen, there is even a `manifesto' which covers the firms beliefs, organization goals, charity endeavors, etc.; the factors that drive their work. To see a remarkable design career in progress (rare in these catalog style art and architecture volumes) be sure to check out `From the House to the City.' It's a sure way to see what's coming next - and why.

I haven't found too many books on Richard Rogers+Architects so I was pleased when this one turned out to be just what I wanted. A good survey of built projects including works in progress. Nice paper is used and the images look great. Well done.

Tons of great sketches. Gives good insight to an architect who is good at fitting his unique style into various contexts. It's a great read and a good addition to one's library.
