London-based practice Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP) have announced the elevation of five associates to partner level while Mike Davies CBE, who has worked alongside Lord Rogers for more than forty years, will be reducing his roles. Davies has been involved in some of the practice's most significant projects including the Pompidou Centre in Paris, Lloyd's of London, the Millennium Dome, and Terminal 5 at London's Heathrow Airport. As a Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur, Davies is currently the project director for Grand Paris, the masterplan for Greater Paris 2025 which was commissioned by former President Nicolas Sarkozy. According to RSHP, Davies "will remain employed in a part-time role."
The practice, which is about to transition to new studio spaces in its recently completed Leadenhall Building, will see Stephen Barrett, Stephen Light, John McElgunn, Tracy Meller and Andrew Tyley become partners in the beginning of 2016. Earlier this year RSHP announced a shake-up of their studio system.
