Autor: Diller Scofidio + Renfro
Diller Scofidio + Renfro is an international design firm that spans architecture, the visual arts and the performing arts. The studio established its identity through experimental large-scale installations, curatorial and performance projects and works in media and print.
DS+R is led by three partners—Elizabeth Diller, Ricardo Scofidio and Charles Renfro—who work collaboratively with a team of designers, artists and architects on the design of each project. For their commitment to merging art and architecture with issues of contemporary culture, founding partners Elizabeth Diller and Ricardo Scofidio were recognized by the MacArthur Foundation “genius” award, the first given in architecture.
Recent and ongoing architecture projects include the High Line park, redevelopment of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the expansion of The Museum of Modern Art, and the new start-up Culture Shed, all in New York; the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; the Museum of Image and Sound, Rio de Janeiro; Zaryadye Park, Moscow; and the United States Olympic Museum, Colorado Springs. The studio’s recent art projects include Musings on a Glass Box for the Fondation Cartier and Charles James: Beyond Fashion at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
