Quick flight back to Beijing, into the office for a couple of hours, then off to the opening of the Richard Rogers From the House to the City exhibition at the Capital Museum. We've played a piggy-in-the-middle mediating role between his practice, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, and the museum, which has been a bit of a slog to be honest. Still, the exhibition looks fabulous, taking up the entire length of the museum: full of models, screens, photos, even some bespoke furniture, all colour-coordinated in bright oranges, blues, pinks and greens. Not to be outdone, Lord Rogers turned up in green & blue, and his son, Ab (also a designer), wore the most extraordinary green flowery trousers.
It was also good to meet up with Ben Warner, who was Rogers' rep in Tokyo while we were there, and now heads up RSH+P's Shanghai office. His clothing was rather more muted.
