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.
