Douglas Murphy is a writer and critic. He is the author of The Architecture of Failure (Zero, 2012) and writes for many publications including the Guardian, Frieze, RIBA Journal and Building Design. He is architecture correspondent for Icon magazine, and is currently writing Last Futures for Verso.
The architecture of Richard Rogers emerged from a period when the future was malleable, and radical change was very much possible. Viewed from half a century later, have the promises of that period been realised? What was lost along the way, and could it and should it be found again?

NB. This Soapbox Talk replaces that by Owen Hatherley which had been previously advertised. Owen Hatherley will instead be speaking in the What next for architecture? event on 11 October.
Taking place in Richard Rogers RA: Inside Out , the Soapbox provides a literal platform for key figures from the worlds of architecture, design, art and engineering to make fresh and passionate 15-minute polemics on some of the central issues confronting architecture and cities, today and in the future. Provocative and inspiring, contentious and stimulating, audience participation is actively encouraged! Find out more
