Diller Scofidio + Renfro: Lincoln Centre Inside Out

By Diller, Scofidio and Renfro

The redesign of Lincoln Center is one of the most challenging and innovative civic projects in recent urban history. Over the past eight years, Diller Scofidio + Renfro (DS+R), in close collaboration with FxFowle, Beyer Blender Belle and Lincoln Center’s leadership, has transformed the 50-year-old modernist citadel into a porous and democratic campus.

This visually rich document is the first comprehensive book to feature the extensive redevelopment in its entirety. Lincoln Centre: Inside Out details DS+R’s interpretation of the modernist project after several generations of social and political change. Through a combination of photographs, drawings, renderings, archival records and texts, the book describes the innovative strategies that have dissolved the public/private divide and effectively turned the campus inside-out, extending the spectacle of the performance halls into the Center’s mute public spaces and surrounding streets. Conceived as a cross between an art book, a scholarly record and an architectural diary, this publication demonstrates how the recent redesign both respects and challenges preconceived notions about Lincoln Center and its ongoing role as a cultural hub in an ever-changing city.
