In 1981, Piano founded the Renzo Piano Building Workshop, which today employs 150 people and maintains ofces in Paris, Genoa, and New York City.[5] In 1994, Renzo Piano won the international competition for the new Auditorium in Rome. The Auditorium Parco della Musica, a large multi-functional public music complex situated in the north of city, was inaugurated in 2002. In 1999, Piano designed a watch entitled "Jelly Piano (GZ159)" for the Swatch Summer Collection. The watch design is clear and the exposed inner workings were inuenced by his Centre Georges Pompidou design.[6] In 2001, he designed the Maison Hermes store in Ginza, Tokyo in the design of a traditional Japanese magic lantern.[7] It is fory-ve meters tall by eleven meters wide.[7] On 18 March 2008, he became an honorary citizen of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Piano's recent expansion of the Art Institute of Chicago includes a 264,000-square-foot (24,500 m2) wing with 60,000 square feet (5,600 m2) of gallery space[9] called the Modern Wing, which opened on 16 May 2009.[1][10] It includes a "ying carpet", a sunscreen that hovers above the roof and a 620-foot (190 m) steel bridge connecting Millennium Park to a sculpture terrace that leads into a restaurant on the wings third oor. His current projects include the The Shard, Europe's tallest skyscraper which was opened on July 6, 2012, and the Centro de Arte Botn. The Botin Foundation,[11] the largest private foundation in Spain, will invest over US $150 million for the construction and programming of a new Botn Center that will become an international reference in culture and education for the development of creativity through art.[12] Another controvertial project nearing its completion is the Valletta City Gate in Malta which may result in the City's loss of its UNESCO title.[13] On 30 August 2013 he was appointed senator for life because of his "outstanding cultural achievements" by the President of the Italian Republic.
