[Most Influence]

  1. Lord Peer of the Realm
    -- Lord Rogers, 66, architect
    "The ultimate architect of influence. Richard Rogers is a peer of the realm, friend of Blair and Prescott, giver of parties attended by the cultured and powerful. Ex-Reith lecturer, chairman of the government's Urban Task Force, which proposed policies for rejuvenating Britain's cities; chairman of the Architecture Foundation; ex-chairman of the board of the Arts Council.

    Half-Italian, his influence spreads through an Italianate network of family and friends. His wife co-runs the River Cafe, his business partner is President of the Royal Institute of British Architects, his ex-employees and partners are designing most of London's new landmarks.

    On top of all this he designed, or co-designed, the Pompidou Centre, the Lloyd's Building and the Millennium Dome, which are, respectively, among the iconic buildings of the Seventies, Eighties and Nineties." (esm_99.12.21)
