Artist profile

Renzo Piano is one of the world's most renowned architects. From the Pompidou Centre in Paris to the Shard in London, his buildings have changed cities across the globe.

Born 1937 into a family of builders in Genoa, Italy, Renzo Piano studied at Politecnico of Milan University. He founded Piano & Rogers with Richard Rogers RA in 1971, going on to share Atelier Piano & Rice with Peter Rice until 1981 when Piano established the Renzo Piano Building Workshop in Paris and Genoa.

He has been working for the Renzo Piano Foundation since 2004, a non-profit organisation dedicated to the promotion of the architectural profession through education, and 50 years of his pioneering work will be celebrated with the Renzo Piano: The Art of Making Buildings exhibition organised by the Royal Academy of Arts, London, in collaboration with Renzo Piano Building Workshop and the Fondazione Renzo Piano.
