Elizabeth Diller moved from Poland to NYC as a child, whilst Richard Scofidio is from New York.
Diller Scofidio + Renfro is an international design firm that spans architecture, the visual arts, and the performing arts. The architectural practice established its identity through experimental large-scale installations, curatorial and performance projects, and works in media and print. Based in New York, the design firm is led by three partners—Elizabeth Diller, Ricardo Scofidio, and Charles Renfro—who work collaboratively with a team of one hundred designers, artists, and architects on the design of each project.
Our focus at e-architect is on good quality architecture offices: please contact us if you wish your design studio to be considered. Send us text and credited images for our consideration.
If your architecture firm is already listed but you wish to update or augment the content then please get in touch and send a screenshot of any changes and we can try to fix, within reason.
Often architectural studios change their names then ask to update even historically-correct information across the website; we feel this is not helpful in terms of historical accuracy, but we can of course make fresh content to match the new practice branding.
Comments for the World Architecture Practices page welcome. Please advise us of proposed additions.
