Diller Scofidio + Renfro: Architecture After Images

Edward Dimendberg
2013, University of Chicago Press


In Diller Scofidio + Renfro: Architecture after Images , Edward Dimendberg offers the first comprehensive treatment of this contemporary design studio. Since founding their practice in 1979, Elizabeth Diller and Richard Scofidio have integrated architecture, urban design, media art and the performing arts into their projects.


Dimendberg provides an extensive overview of these concerns and the history of the studio, revealing how principals Elizabeth Diller, Richard Scofidio and Charles Renfro continue to expand the definition of architecture, question the nature of space and vision in contemporary culture and realize surprising and rewarding projects.


Based on interviews with the architects, their clients, and collaborators as well as access to unpublished documents, sketchbooks and archival records, Diller Scofidio + Renfro is a thorough consideration of DS+R.
