When David Rockwell, Founder and President of the Rockwell Group, takes the stage at City Modern with panelists including fashion designer Isabel Toledo, artist and illustrator Ruben Toledo, and Broadway Director and Choreographer Jerry Mitchell, you can bet we’ll be listening. His firm has churned out one stand out project after another—W Hotels in New York, Paris, Singapore and Vieques, Nobu restaurants worldwide, New York’s shared workspace Neuehouse, and the Shinola Flagship Tribeca, to name a few. The group expands their design beyond the physical and creates a unique narrative for each project to help inform their concepts. We recently had the chance to talk to Mr. Rockwell and get a little taste of what’s to come at City Modern, whose work is exciting him right now, and how he envisions the stadium of the future.
