Diller + Scofidio

Diller + Scofidio is a collaborative, interdisciplinary studio that merges architecture, the visual arts, and the performing arts. The work of D+S takes the form of architectural projects, temporary and permanent site-specific art works, multi-media theater, electronic media, and print. They are recipients of numerous outstanding Awards. In 2003, D+S was awarded the commission to design the public spaces of Lincoln Center in New York. They are currently designing a new building for the Institute of Contemporary Art at Fan Pier in Boston and the new Museum of Art & Technology for Eyebeam in New York, both awarded following international competitions and both featured in the most recent Venice Biennale. D+S is also working on Facsimile, a permanent media installation for the new Moscone Convention Center expansion in San Francisco and a masterplan for a waterfront park on the East River in New York. Recently completed projects include the Blur Building, a media pavilion for Swiss EXPO 2002, a master plan for Brooklyn Academy of Music Cultural District for BAMLDC in collaboration with Rem Koolhaas, and the Viewing Platform for Ground Zero at the WTC site. A retrospective of their work was exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art from March through May of 2003. Elizabeth Diller is Professor of Architecture at Princeton University and Ricardo Scofidio is Professor of Architecture at The Cooper Union. Both are authors of several books such as “Back to the Front: Tourisms of was”, “ Flesh: architectural probes” among many others.
