David Rockwell Joins Cooper-Hewitt Board

David Rockwell, the designer and architect perhaps best known for his now-annual work building sets for the Academy Awards, designing sections of the JetBlue terminal at JFK Airport, and most recently for his just-opened, much-discussed playground in New York’s South Street Seaport, has just risen up a notch in his legacy. Rockwell has accepted a spot on the board of the Smithsonian‘s Cooper-Hewitt, the national design museum. His connection to the museum has been in place for some time, with his nomination for a National Design Award back in 2007 for his work on the Union Square W Hotel, and as the NY Times reports, he had been serving “on the museum’s exhibition committee since 2006.” Now, with this new lofty position, presumably he’ll be helping to oversee more of the museum’s big picture plans.
