Rockwell brought his passion for theater and an eye for the color and spectacle of Mexico to his architecture training at Syracuse University, where he received his Bachelor of Architecture.
In 2014, to mark the 30th anniversary of the company, the Rockwell Group published a book What If…? The Architecture and Design of David Rockwell. The book itself reflects designers’ interest in materiality and sensory experiences by using innovative and unusual silkscreen, binding, and printing techniques. Narrator and contributor voices are highlighted using different typefaces, bringing personal perspectives and behind the scenes details to life.
