Haute Living: What is your dream project?

David Rockwell: Because our projects are so diverse and bring up such different challenges and rewards, it’s hard to name one dream project.

Last July we opened our Imagination Playground™ in a BOX in Brownsville, NY, and we will break ground on a fixed-site Imagination Playground™ in Burling Slip in downtown Manhattan this January. These are the culmination of years of research, focus groups, conferences, and workshops…to create an innovative play environment with diverse materials that encourages unstructured, child-directed “free play.” Imagination Playground™ at Burling Slip was the first step, in collaboration with the New York Department of Parks and Recreation.
