As Richard Rogers Turns 80, His Early Masterpiece Listed

Just in time for his 80th birthday, starchitect Richard Rogers' parents' house, one of his first prominent commissions, has come to market in London, asking $4.9M. Known simply as the Rogers House, the project was completed back in 1968 by Rogers and his then-wife, Su. The starchitect described the house as "the most successful small project I have been involved in." That's no small accolade, considering Rogers has been involved with some of the most iconic works of architecture erected in his lifetime, including the Pompidou Centre in Paris. But it should be noted that the existing mini-compound is the result of a series of collaborations. His son, Ab Rogers, contributed an outbuilding; his mother, an avid gardener, is responsible for the landscape design. Currently inhabited by Ab Rogers, the Grade II*-listed modernist house is on the market for the first time in its 45-year history.
