Elizabeth Diller – First Post-Wall Architect
Elizabeth Diller Speech Sample
Elizabeth Diller Biography:
Liz Diller might just be the first post-wall architect. From a mid-lake rotunda made of fog to a gallery that destroys itself with a robotic drill, her brainy takes on the essence of buildings are mind-bending and rebellious.
Her firm, Diller Scofidio & Renfro, partakes of criticism that goes past academic papers and into real structures – buildings and art installations that seem to tease the squareness of their neighbors.
DS+R was the first architecture firm to receive a MacArthur “genius” grant — and it also won an Obie for Jet Lag, a wildly creative piece of multimedia off-Broadway theater. A reputation for rampant repurposing of materials and tricksy tinkering with space – on stage, on paper, on the waterfront – have made DS+R a sought-after firm, winning accounts from the Juilliard School, Alice Tully Hall and the School of American Ballet, as part of the Lincoln Center overhaul; at Brown University; and on New York’s revamp of Governer’s Island.
Their Institute for Comtemporary Art has opened up a new piece of Boston’s waterfront, creating an elegant space that embraces the water.
