Diller + Scofidio

MAP 10 - The Charles & Ray Eames Lecture




The work of Diller + Scofidio questions how architecture may contribute to a probing and unresolved engagement with the world by challenging the images of stability and control we conventionally confer upon our buildings. Their new design for The Eyebeam Atelier in New York not only reveals the innards of the museum by making a huge transparent billboard of the people, art and mediatechnology it contains, it also frames the intrinsically mutable identity of any contemporary cultural institution. In the end their proposition for this new media arts and performance center does much more than simply provide an armature for a new vision of art and technology—it produces vision itself.
