ELIZABETH DILLER is a founding principal of DILLER SCOFIDIO + RENFRO (DS+R), an interdisciplinary design studio that integrates architecture, the visual arts, and the performing arts.

DS+R has received the National Design Award, the Brunner Prize, the Centennial Medal of Honor from the American Academy in Rome, and numerous AIA awards. In 2003, the Whitney Museum of American Art held a retrospective of the studio’s work, recognizing DS+R’s unorthodox practice. Ms. Diller is a Professor of Architecture at Princeton University.
