Elizabeth Diller is a founding member of Diller Scofidio + Renfro, a New York-based interdisciplinary design studio whose boundary-crossing architecture work is informed by the visual and performing arts. The firm has won rave reviews for projects such as Manhattan’s High Line park, the atmospheric Blur Building in Switzerland, a redesign of Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, and a new postmodern home for the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston.

Diller and partner Ricardo Scofidio were recipients of the MacArthur Foundation “genius award” in 1999, the first ever given in architecture. Honored many times by the American Institute of Architects, they have also been awarded Cooper-Hewitt’s National Design Award, an Obie for creative achievement in off-Broadway theater, and a James Beard Foundation Award for Best Restaurant Design.

This talk is presented by the IMA’s Design Arts Society and made possible by the Evans Woollen Memorial Lecture Fund and Herman Miller. Promotional support provided by AIA Indianapolis.
