Arts Corner: Imagine

I've always found Richard Rogers' buildings beautiful (especially the Pompidou in Paris), so it was interesting to watch last night's hour-long special on his career. But although the buildings kept me riveted to the end, it did turn into a bit of a love-fest. Yes, the talking heads from Rogers + Partners were interesting, but I'd have really liked to see some comments from people who actually have to work/live in his structures, to see what they make of them.

There was an awful lot of parading about Florence in the sunshine too, which was sickening in the middle of February...
