Richard Rogers’ practice - Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners was founded in 1977 and has offices in London, Barcelona, Madrid, New York, Tokyo and Sydney. It is best known for such pioneering buildings as the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the headquarters for Lloyd’s of London, the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg and the Millennium Dome in London.
Lippmann Partnership was established in Sydney in 1985 and has been responsible for some of Sydney’s most highly patronised, awarded public projects including the Andrew “Boy” Charlton Pool, King George V Recreation Centre as well as acclaimed commercial and private architecture. The skill and innovation of the Lippmann office combined with the global expertise of the Rogers practice has been a unique aspect of the realisation and delivery of this project.
