“Space On Demand” Diller Scofidio + Renfro at AEDES Architecture Forum Berlin

As DS+R’s first exhibition in Berlin, ’Space On Demand’ presents a rare preview of the studio’s methodology and innerworkings through the close examination of a single project, still under construction: The Shed, a multi-arts center designed to commission, produce, and present all types of performing arts, visual arts, and popular culture.

Diller Scofidio + Renfro (DS+R) is an interdisciplinary design studio that integrates architecture, the visual arts, and the performing arts. Founded in 1979, the New York City-based practice established its identity through self-generated, theoretical art installations before reaching international prominence through projects such as the renovation and expansion of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York, and the High Line, an urban park built on an abandoned elevated railway trestle on Manhattan’s west side. Today, DS+R is led by four partners who collaborate on the design of each project with a staff of 100 architects, artists, researchers, and writers. DS+R is currently engaged in numerous projects across the world: the 34-acre Zaryadye Park adjacent to the Kremlin in Moscow; the Museum of Image & Sound on Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro, and The Juilliard School’s first overseas campus in Tianjin, China.
