Robert M. Rogers
Robert M. Rogers, FAIA, is the founding partner of ROGERS PARTNERS Architects+Urban Designers. Rob creates institutional and cultural buildings that are civic work. Believing that even a single building is a piece of urban design, his work assertively and elegantly combines urbanism, landscape and architecture. His current projects include the redesign of Constitution Gardens on the National Mall, the new St. Petersburg Pier, a revived Minneapolis Waterfront Park and new buildings for Rice, Syracuse and Drexel universities. An active lecturer, Rob has served as critic and professor at academic institutions around the country including Harvard University, Yale University, Columbia University, Washington University in St. Louis, Syracuse University, Parsons (New School University), the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc), Tulane University, and held the Cullinan Chair in Architecture at Rice University. He is also an author and architectural theorist; his new book, Learning Through Practice, discusses the principles that guide his practice. Rob holds a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor in Architecture from Rice University and a Master of Design Studies, with distinction, from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design.
