So, what did you think of the Oscars Sunday night? David Rockwell designed the sets that I thought made the show. The lighting, in particular, was remarkable, both on the stage and framing the stage.
When it comes to spectacle, David understands how to design the experience. Broadway sets, restaurants, hotels, malls, the Kodak Oscar interior??e gets it. Check out his book with Bruce Mau, Spectacle, about spectacle around the world and the human need for ritual. It?? awesome.
The design of experience is critical. Now we have to redesign the learning experience.
