A celebration of the work of contemporary architect David Rockwell, who works at the intersection of architecture and performance.

This unique insight into the projects and philosophy of renowned architect and Tony Award-winning set designer David Rockwell explores the remarkable range of his work, from restaurants and hotels to museums and Broadway stages. It is the first book to shine a spotlight on the relationship between architecture and performance and features contributions from leading voices and talents in fields as diverse as architecture, lighting design, and the culinary arts.

David Rockwell's fascination with theater has long informed his built work. Drama explores the core principles that Rockwell uses to enhance the impact of his architecture, with contributions from experts across the creative world - from record producer Quincy Jones to chef José Andrés. 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.
