David Rockwell Discusses The Curiosity That Drives His Work

We couldn't help but watch this new interview with architect David Rockwell about How Good Buildings Happen. He first fascinated us with his interactive iPad installation for the National Building Museum's annual gala (when he spoke with Curbed about it he described it as a 'high tech version of a pinata'). Recently he took part in a panel discussion along with Charles Renfro as a part of the the Municipal Arts Society’s Summit on New York City. After the break is his interview from before the event where he starts off by saying, "What really interests me is trying to figure out where the problem is.' After that is when the fun starts, when he gets to figure out how to solve it.
