Diller, Scofidio + Renfro
The construction of the High Line, a city park created along the route of an abandoned elevated railway line in Chelsea, New York, attracted such universal acclaim that it brought the architects world fame.
They now work in a great variety of fields of design, from artistic installations such as “The Art of Scent 1889-2012” at the New York Museum of Arts and Design, or Light Sock for Swarovski, to the public buildings which are perhaps the best expression of their poetics and to commercial and residential projects, from landscaping to urban planning. Their vocabulary combines structures of spectacular nature with interior layouts that make conscientious use of space on the basis of how the public uses and understands it.
Their most important public projects include various projects in the renovation of the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York: the redesign of Alice Tully Hall, the renewal and expansion of the Juilliard School, the expansion of the School of American Ballet, renovation of the New York State Theater foyer, the pedestrian bridge and more. Their new Hypar Pavilion restaurant, completed in 2011, is a particularly dramatic project bringing a public roof garden into the middle of the Lincoln Center.
In 2009 Time Magazine named Elizabeth Diller and Ricardo Scofidio among the 100 most influential people of the year for their contributions to art and design, and in 2003 the studio was featured in a retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art. Both partners were admitted to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2008 and later made members of the Royal Institute of British Architects.
