  3. Architect Lord Richard Rogers and the Making Of Scandicci City

Architect Lord Richard Rogers and the Making Of Scandicci City

Architect Lord Richard Rogers and the Making Of Scandicci City

Scandicci City began as a suburb of Florence and was often described as a commuter town with a lack of a clear urban center. Having reached out to Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners to address this need, this short documentary created by scandiccibyrogers.com offers a look inside Rogers' studio in London and the creation of a new urban master plan for Scandicci City.

In it, Rogers explains his belief that public places are crucial parts of cities, and discusses how urban areas can begin to develop from a dense core - an urban design strategy that responds to the rising popularity of city living in recent years, and utilizes public transportation rather than relying on cars.
