Principal, Diller Scofidio + Renfro
Elizabeth Diller is a founding partner of Diller Scofidio + Renfro (DS+R), an interdisciplinary design studio that works at the intersection of architecture, the visual arts, and the performing arts. Diller along with Ricardo Scofidio received the “genius” award from the MacArthur Foundation in 1999, the first in the field of architecture to be so honored. Today, DS+R is led by four partners, who work with a staff of over 100 architects, designers, artists, and researchers.
DS+R’s international body of completed work includes the Roy and Diana Vagelos Education Center at Columbia University Medical Center, New York; the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, University of California, Berkeley; The Broad, a contemporary art museum in Los Angeles; the redevelopment of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, New York; and the High Line, which extends 1.5 miles on the west side of Manhattan. Among the studio’s in-progress projects are The Shed, a new center for artistic invention at Hudson Yards, New York; and the Museum of Image & Sound in Rio de Janeiro. Diller is a professor of architecture at Princeton University.
