Elizabeth Diller/Diller Scofidio and Renfro
Wednesday, February 27, 5:30 pm
The work of New York architectural firm Diller Scofidio and Renfro encompasses architecture, urban design, and visual and performing arts. Among the firm's best-known projects is the dramatic Blur Building, a media pavilion on Lake Neuchâtel, with a cloud canopy of lake water hovering above it (2002). Recent projects include the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston (2006); and Facsimile, a permanent media installation at the new Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco (2004). Elizabeth Diller and Ricardo Scofidio, who founded the firm in 1979, were the first architects to receive the MacArthur Foundation "genius award" (1999). Charles Renfro became a partner in 2004.
Lecture takes place at the Center for the Study of Modern Art, located in the Carriage House behind the museum.
