Synopsis: Rockwell Group turns dreams into space. From steel and stone, color and light, Rockwell Group creates environments that are at once destinations and a means of transport: to new worlds, new experiences. Rockwell Group has crafted a vital form of vernacular architecture and design, one that crackles with the kinetic energy of the avant-garde, the shimmer of Hollywood, the sensual mystery of a far-off, yet somehow familiar, place. With projects such as the Kodak Theatre, a masterful pairing of technology and spectacle worthy of the Academy Awards; the Mohegan Sun casino, a dazzling scenescape of myth and wonder; and the Children's Hospital at Montefiore, where learning and discovery help advance the healing process; Rockwell Group has garnered accolades for a signature design strategy that seduces, entertains, informs, and inspires. Pleasure is the first book to examine the theaters, hotels, stadiums, restaurants, casinos, and other spaces across the country that have positioned Rockwell Group as one of America's most influential, acclaimed, and popular firms.

Including essays by Kurt Andersen, Paola Antonelli, Arnold Aronson, Raul A. Barreneche, Michael Bierut, Paul Goldberger, Gael Greene, Reed Kroloff, Todd Oldham, Chee Pearlman, Irwin Redlener, M.D., George C. Wolfe, Richard Saul Wurman

Featured projects include: Nobu, Vong, Ruby Foo's, Michael Jordan's The Steak House N.Y.C., Animator's Palate, Chambers, W New York and W Union Square, Children's Hospital at Montefiore, Jersey Gardens, Cirque du Soleil, Kodak Theatre, Coca-Cola Skyfield, Mohegan Sun Casino & Resort

Review: "David Rockwell is the one architect most likely to change your life."--Esquire

"Rockwell...is the nation's leading practitioner of what is sometimes called 'entertainment architecture,' a discipline that breaks down the barriers between 'design' and narrative arts such as filmmaking."--Newsweek

"Mr. Rockwell's work embodies the current convergence of technology, entertainment, and design."--New York Times
