Among the most talked-about names in contemporary architecture, the firm of Diller + Scofidio has, since 1980, redefined what architecture can be. Through site-specific, highly conceptual works such as the acclaimed redesign of the famed Brasserie restaurant in New York City's Seagram Building, to the "Blur" building created for the Swiss Expo 2002 and composed entirely of mist, the firm has consistently challenged and expanded the role of architecture and design in our technology-oriented environment. In this comprehensive survey of the work of this internationally recognized firm, ten of Diller + Scofidio's most important site-specific pieces are examined, along with several of the artefacts they have created in order to examine issues of gender, surveillance, place and travel. With essays by respected scholars and a contribution by contemporary artist Laurie Anderson, this illustrated volume offers a look at the work of Elizabeth Diller and Ricardo Scofidio.
