Elizabeth Diller

Founding Partner
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. DS+R focuses on projects of civic importance: rethinking the future of the city, the changing role of institutions and the increasing dominance of technology. The studio’s international body of work includes the adaptive reuse of historic infrastructure to create the High Line and the redevelopment of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts’ half-century-old campus. Most recently, DS+R completed The Broad in Los Angeles, the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive at the University of California and the Roy and Diana Vagelos Education Center at Columbia University. This year, DS+R completed the first phase of renovation and expansion of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, increasing the museum’s gallery space by 30%. Upcoming projects include the Museum of Image & Sound in Rio de Janeiro, Zaryadye Park in Moscow and The Shed, a cultural startup for which DS+R is both progenitor and architect. Diller is a Professor of Architecture at Princeton University.
