Frank Gehry has one, so do Jean Nouvel and Norman Foster. Renzo Piano has two. But last month, when New York’s governor scrapped a convention center expansion project, Richard Rogers—who joined Piano in electrifying Paris with the Pompidou Center during the early 1970s—remained a Pritzker Prize winner who has worked in New York City without a finished project to show for it.
Richard Rogers’ design for an expansion of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, on Manhattan’s far West Side, which New York Governor Eliot Spitzer scrapped in January in favor of a smaller scheme.
