Richard Rogers has been awarded the 2019 AIA Gold Medal by the American Institute of Architects. The world-renowned architect and founding principal of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners has been recognized “for his influence on the built environment [that] has redefined an architect’s responsibilities to society.”

Honoring “an individual or pair of architects whose significant body of work has had a lasting influence on the theory and practice of architecture,” the AIA Gold Medal is often considered the highest honor awarded in the United States for architecture.

Six years ago Susan Szenasy and I had the honor of interviewing Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer for Metropolis magazine. While he was a federal appeals judge in Boston, Breyer played a key role in shepherding the design and construction of the John Joseph Moakley United State Courthouse, designed by Pei Cobb Freed & Partners. In 2011 Justice Breyer joined the jury of the Pritzker Prize. Given his long involvement with architecture, I thought it would be fun to catch up with him. So, on the final day of court before breaking for the summer recess, I talked to Justice Breyer about his experience as a design client, how to create good government buildings, and why public architecture matters.

Balkrishna Doshi Named 2018 Pritzker Prize Laureate

This year’s Pritzker jury has selected Indian architect Balkrishna Doshi, often known as B.V. Doshi or Doshi, as the 2018 Pritzker Prize Laureate. Doshi has been a practitioner of architecture for over 70 years. Previously, he had studied and worked with both Le Corbusier and Louis Kahn. Doshi’s poetic architecture draws upon Eastern influences to create a body of work that “has touched lives of every socio-economic class across a broad spectrum of genres since the 1950s,” cites the jury. Doshi is the first Indian architect to receive architecture’s highest honor.

Video: La Casa de Ruth y Richard Rogers en Londres

En uno de los últimos cortos realizados por Nowness, el director Matthew Donaldson explora la casa de Ruth y Richard Rogers en Londres. Lo que parece ser un típico edificio de estilo georgiano desde el exterior, con “una fachada de ladrillo con ventanas uniformes y estuco”, se abre en una serie de audaces, coloridos y acogedores espacios interiores que sólo pueden venir de Richard Rogers.

Los detalles de diseño parecen repetirse en muchos de los proyectos más famosos de Rogers, como la estética tubular llamativa del Centro Pompidou, en pequeña escala. Los espacios interiores  -incluido el salón principal-, giran alrededor de la cocina, lo que no es de extrañar ya que Ruth Rogers es dueña de un restaurant italiano en The River Café.
