Renzo and Matteo Piano

Designer

Renzo Piano was born in Genoa in 1937 into a family of builders. He developed strong attachments with this historic city and port and with his father's profession. While studying at Politecnico of Milan University, he worked in the office of Franco Albin. In 1971, he set up the Piano & Rogers office in London together with Richard Rogers, with whom he won  the competition for the Centre Pompidon. He subsequently moved to Paris. From early 1970s to the 1990s, he worked with the engineer Peter Rice, sharing the Atelier Piano & Rice from 1977 to 1981. In 1981, the Renzo Piano Building Workshop was established, with 150 staff and offices in Paris, Genoa and New York.
