BOOK - Richard Rogers Box Set

The first time I got contact with Richard Rogers work was in in first year of college. I had to make a wok about Centre Pompidou building in Paris by architects Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers. I got fascinated with the building and specially with the early days project of those young architects back in the 70's. Richard Rogers work where comiled in various books. I remenbered taking home some years ago from school library one of them published back in 1985 by Academy Editions: Richard Rogers+Architects. It was so used and deteriorated that I took some hours to fully scan it and try to restore it as much as I could before bringing it back. Onether book i took home was The Richard Rogers complete work volume 1 and volume 2. Both where big thick hardcover book and that I wished to have back in those days. Some years later a third volume and a compilation box came out. This box included the three volumes in paperback edition in a thick cardboard box and now that it's in a bargain price in amazon I just ordered.
