First Lady of architecture
Diller, founding partner of the New York studio Diller Scofidio + Renfro, is rethinking the American urban landscape with projects such as the High Line. As a Guest Editor, she gave us an exclusive photographic tour of the new Broad museum in Los Angeles. The cinematic chase (left) followed two characters in hot pursuit beneath the galleries’ latticed ceilings. They emerged with the same energy Diller brings to her work: ‘We jump off a cliff without a parachute and we hope that we make a soft landing.’ Landing flawlessly with cultural projects such as the ICA Boston and the Museum of Image and Sound in Rio, Diller is now working on a major overhaul of MOMA and the opening of New York arts complex The Shed.
