David Rockwell’s fascination with theater has long informed his built work, which includes hotels, restaurants, and cultural institutions. Drama (Phaidon, 2021), authored by Rockwell with Bruce Mau and edited by Sam Lubell, explores the core principles that Rockwell uses to enhance the impact of his architecture, with contributions from experts across the creative world—including record producer Quincy Jones, chef José Andrés, and curator Thelma Golden, among many others. It’s both an exciting new insight into the work of an important contemporary architect and a compelling case for the virtues of interdisciplinary collaboration.
