About RSH+P:
Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP) is an international architectural practice based in London. Over three decades, RSHP has attracted critical acclaim and awards with built projects across Europe, North America and Asia. The practice is experienced in designing a wide range of building types including: office, residential, transport, education, culture, leisure, retail, civic and healthcare. The quality of its designs has been recognised with some of architecture’s highest awards, including two RIBA Stirling Prizes, one in 2006 for Terminal 4, Madrid Barajas Airport and the other in 2009 for Maggie’s London.

RSHP employs around 200 people, including 9 Partners, 10 Associate Partners and 63 Associates, in offices across the world – London, Sydney and Shanghai. A ‘Think Tank’ philosophy is employed at every level, to enable design and management leaders to collaborate and contribute their individual expertise. Weekly meetings – open to all employees – provide a vital forum for discussion of current competitions and on-going projects, as well as a platform for creativity and new solutions appropriate to each design. This ‘collegiate’ approach to the work of the practice is embodied in a constitution that consciously brings a moral dimension to our work and takes the form of, among other initiatives, a staff profit-sharing scheme and significant contributions to charity, with staff members nominating the charities of their choice.

The firm was originally named Richard Rogers Partnership but was renamed in 2007 to Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners due to the growing importance of Graham Stirk and Ivan Harbour’s role in the firm.

Richard Rogers:
Born in Florence in 1933 and attended Architectural Association of London then graduated with a Master’s Degree at Yale School of Architecture in 1962. He met Norman Foster and Su Brumwell at Yale before setting up an architectural practice in England named Team 4 comprising of the aforementioned as well as Wendy Cheesemen. The firm was known for high-tech architecture. The firm dissolved in 1967, and in 1971 Rogers won the competiton for the Centre Pompideau with Renzo Piano, Gianfranco Franchini alongside Ove Arup (including Peter Rice).

Some of his notable achievements include:
2007 Pritzker Architecture Prize Laureate
