Diller Scofidio + Renfro work in the shadow of the High Line

  • 1 Comment

Diller Scofidio + Renfro, the practice behind Manhattan’s High Line project (pictured), is working on an intriguing project next to the former train line, which it turned into an urban park.

Its brief was for a self-funding arts building – undoubtedly difficult to achieve given the real estate values in New York City. The practice’s solution? To create a revolutionary nest of ‘boxes’, which can extend outwards on tracks, thereby tripling the space available for paying events like fashion shows.

The architect is now quasi-client and quasi-funder, as well as carrying out the design job. Well, you do have to be flexible these days.

  • Diller Scofido + Renfro are not 'the practice behind the high line'. Field Operations are the practice behind the high line, albeit working with Diller Renfro + Scofido.
