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 Childrens 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 Americas most influential, acclaimed, and popular firms.Including essays by Kurt Andersen, Paola Antonelli, Arnold Aronson, Raul A.
