The language of architecture according to Richard Rogers: a formal narrative
Thursday August 20th, 2015 · PORCELANOSA Grupo
Balance and rhythm turn out to be the concepts in which Richard Rogers articulates the architectural narrative regarding his projects.
According to the respected designer, who runs Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners architecture studio, the architect’s main objective is to create spaces where people live their own story. Designing involves understanding the particular language that architecture speaks, together with the aim of placing each piece in harmony with its surroundings. The result is a formal, visual and functional narration which is told in every space.
Richard Rogers has been the gold medal for RIBA since 1985, and furthermore, he is a renowned British architect who has received awards such as the prestigious Pritzker Architecture award in 2007.
His studio has its offices in London, Madrid, Shanghai and Sydney, and what is more, he has been responsible for some highly important international iconic projects, such as Georges Pompidou Centre in Paris, The Millennium Dome in London or The European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.
Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, in collaboration with the Spanish Luis Vidal + Architectos studio, was in charge of the design of the awarded MOOD collection by Noken, a new modular concept of bathroom equipment with innovative aesthetics and a vibrant colour palette.
The prestigious architect’s bright and cheery energetic style is clearly in evidence in every project he carries out as well as in this testimonial video with regard to his words addressed to Noken, the specialised firm in bathrooms by PORCELANOSA Grupo on its 15th anniversary.
