Diller Scofidio + Renfro (DS+R) is a New York-based design studio whose practice spans the fields of architecture, urban design, installation art, multi-media performance, digital media, and print. Founded in 1981, DS+R is led by four partners—Elizabeth Diller, Ricardo Scofidio, Charles Renfro and Benjamin Gilmartin.
DS+R completed two of the largest architecture and planning initiatives in New York City’s recent history: the adaptive reuse of an obsolete, industrial rail infrastructure into the High Line, a 1.5 mile-long public park, and the transformation of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts’ half-century-old campus. In 2019, the studio completed two more projects significant to New York: The Shed, the first multi-arts center designed to commission, produce, and present all types of performing arts, visual arts, and popular culture, and the renovation and expansion of The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). The studio’s recent projects also include the 35-acre Zaryadye Park adjacent to the Kremlin in Moscow, and The Broad contemporary art museum in Los Angeles.
DS+R is currently designing the Centre for Music, a new permanent home for the London Symphony Orchestra; a new Collection and Research Centre for the Victoria & Albert Museum in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and the Hungary Museum of Transport in Budapest.
