ELIZABETH DILLER is a founding principal of DILLER SCOFIDIO + RENFRO (DS+R), an interdisciplinary design studio that integrates architecture, the visual arts, and the performing arts. DS+R’s architectural projects include: the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts expansion and redesign; the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston; the High Line in New York; Blur in Switzerland; the Broad Museum in Los Angeles; the Museum of Image and Sound in Rio de Janeiro; the Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive at UC Berkeley; and Culture Shed in the Hudson Yards Development in New York.

They are fellows of the Royal Institute of British Architects and have been inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Ms. Diller was recently selected as an Aspen Institute Harman-Eisner Artist in Residence and awarded the Barnard Medal of Distinction. In 2003, the Whitney Museum of American Art held a retrospective of the studio’s work, recognizing DS+R’s unorthodox practice. Ms. Diller is a Professor of Architecture at Princeton University.
