Elizabeth Diller: Recent Work
Meyerson Hall, 210 South 34th Street, Lower Gallery
Elizabeth Diller is a founding partner of Diller Scofidio + Renfro (DS+R) and Professor of Architecture at Princeton University. Liz’s cross-genre work has been distinguished with Time Magazine’s "100 Most Influential People" list, and the first MacArthur Foundation fellowship awarded in the field of architecture. Liz is currently leading two cultural works significant to New York: The Shed—the first multi-arts center designed to commission, produce, and present all types of performing arts, visual arts, and popular culture - and the expansion of the Museum of Modern Art (both opening 2019). She also created, directed and produced The Mile-Long Opera, an immersive choral work staged on the High Line this October. Most recently, DS+R was selected to design the Centre for Music, a permanent home for the London Symphony Orchestra; a new Collection and Research Centre for the V&A in London’s Olympic Park; and Adelaide Contemporary, a new gallery and public sculpture park in South Australia.
