Diller Scofidio + Renfro: Reimagining Lincoln Center and the High Line. At a lean 54 minutes, it’s more straightforward than intimate. But its biographical sketch of, primarily, Elizabeth Diller and Ricardo Scofidio has a surprising amount of depth as it charts their evolution from a firm known for imaginative art installations to in-demand architects. The film also probes what Scofidio calls the blurring of “boundaries between what is public and what is private” by focusing specifically (but not exclusively) on the work that went into New York’s High Line park and the redevelopment of the city’s Lincoln Center. Both projects—and the greater issue of public versus private spaces—promise to provoke discussion at a panel organized around the film.
“The conversations that happen between the films are really one of the most important parts of the festival” Bergman says. We’re trying to raise the level of design dialogue, not just among pros, but among engineers and lawyers and pediatricians and people who make pizza. As an Architect, that’s something that I think is really good for the profession. It may even be a great place to discover a Beautiful Stranger or take a look at the NJ Skyline at sunset!!!
