Robert M. Rogers founded Rogers Partners Architects + Urban Designers in August 2013 by Robert M. Rogers. For over 30 years, Rob has explored the edges of architecture and the overlap of disciplines: the spaces where architecture, landscapes and the public realm converge.
Rob creates institutional and cultural buildings that are civic works. From reinventing the security bollard to redesigning a subtle icon on the National Mall, Rob continually elevates accepted conventions in his quest to develop intelligent, rich and timeless contributions to our physical environment. Believing that even a single building is a piece of urban design, his work assertively and elegantly combines urbanism, landscape and architecture.
A recognized leader in advancing new urban technologies and programs, Rob has lectured on urban design and security in Lower Manhattan for the National Capitol Planning Commission and the National Academy of Sciences. He presented as keynote speaker for the National Building Museum's Spotlight on Design and the Malaysian Institute of Architects in Datum, Kuala Lumpur.
Rob has served as professor and architecture critic at prestigious design schools and universities around the country including Harvard University, Cornell University, Columbia University, Yale University, The Pratt Institute, Parsons the New School for Design, Syracuse University, Iowa State University, Washington University in St Louis, Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc), Tulane University and held the Cullinan Chair in Architecture at Rice University.
