The Shed

New York, NY

Opening April 5, 2019, The Shed will be New York’s first arts center dedicated to commissioning, producing, and presenting all types of performing arts, visual arts, and popular culture. The Shed’s Bloomberg Building— an innovative 200,000-square-foot structure designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Lead Architect and Rockwell Group, Collaborating Architect—is designed to physically transform to support artists' most ambitious ideas.

A telescoping outer shell can deploy from its position over the base building and glide along rails onto an adjoining plaza to double the building’s footprint for large-scale performances, installations, and events.

For the inaugural performance, David Rockwell and Adam Stockhausen are wrapping The McCourt in plywood, creating a uniform platform that allows musicians to shine.

Soundtrack of America


Commissioned by Quincy Jones and directed by Steve McQueen, the concert series celebrates the deep impact of African American music on contemporary culture. The stage is a series of four elemental boxes that forms a kind of folly—a simple expression of columns, beams, and planes.

Rockwell Group also designed Cedric’s, a new bar from Danny Meyer's Union Square Hospitality Group that seamlessly blends into the lobby, creating a welcoming and inviting experience for both visitors and locals.

The engaging space has a residential elegance, with a mix of design classics and contemporary, neutral custom pieces with an industrial edge.
