ROGERS PARTNERS Architects+Urban Designers
Rob Rogers, FAIA, is a specialist in urban design and is the founding partner of ROGERS PARTNERS Architects+Urban Designers. He 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. Designing in cities around the country, Rob’s current and notable projects include: the redesign of Constitution Gardens and Pavilion on the National Mall and the restoration of public space for President’s Park South, both in Washington, DC; Atlanta’s Park Over GA400, a nine-acre programmed park over a highway in Atlanta; The New St. Pete Pier, a competition-winning new design of an iconic city pier in St. Petersburg, FL; a new K-8 school integrated into the Drexel University campus in downtown Philadelphia, PA; and the award-winning Henderson-Hopkins School, a progressive independent K-8 school in partnership with Johns Hopkins University School of Education that serves as a neighborhood regenerator for East Baltimore, MD. A recognized leader in advancing new urban technologies and programs, having led iconic designs for the New York Stock Exchange and Battery Park City in lower Manhattan, Rob has lectured on urban design and security for the National Capital Planning Commission and the National Academy of Sciences. He has also served as an architecture critic and professor at academic institutions including Harvard University, Yale University, Columbia University, The Pratt Institute, Rice University, Syracuse University, Parsons the New School for Design and held the Cullinan Chair in Architecture at Rice University.
