Diller Scofidio + Renfro gives Fashion a public face at Lincoln Center Print E-mail
Thursday, 23 September 2010 00:00

DSR_Fashion_IwanBaan_03On the 13th of September, Diller Scofidio + Renfro  completed an installation that served as the primary entrance for over seventy fashion events taking place all that week at Lincoln Center.

The entrance to the tents is covered by a 50 foot tall canopy that seemingly hovers without support above the Lincoln Center plaza.

The canopy treated the ubiquitous travertine cladding of Lincoln Center as a literal and metaphorical fabric; the color and texture of travertine have been turned into a print on a soft material that wraps a structural support system, producing the surreal experience of walking underneath a free-floating travertine volume supported by air.

The malleability of the travertine fabric became apparent as it draped towards the ground as a dress worn by an animatronic female figure. The travertine fabric stretched as the torso rotates. As the travertine dress touched the ground, its shape took on the contours of the entrance ramp and stairs.

Wrapping around three elevations of the car park, the piece is created from 549 powder coated, laser cut aluminum panels, all 1.2m x 3.6m. Collectively these components of the design have been beautifully worked to represent the contours of a map of Cunningham’s Gap and the Main Range, Brisbane.

Illuminating an edifice adds a new dimension to its architecture, highlighting the attributes of the space with a broad range of colors and light intensities. A good demonstration of the enhancements of lighting design can bring, is seen in the work of Abhay Wadhwa.


Abhay has served as the lead designer on diverse lighting projects ranging from hospitality, infrastructure and institutions to transportation, residences and museums. As demonstrated in his intervention on Honk Kong's Peak Tower, he utilizes a broad range of techniques to overlay a dynamic layer of lights and colors.

Inspired by the interwoven twigs of birds’ nests—a form that supports and steadies itself—Bing Thom Architects and Fast + Epp Structural Engineers joined forces to showcase a new and unexpected design innovation using wood from British Columbia.




As part of the “Embassies Project” for the London Festival of Architecture (LFA), Canada House was transformed into a demonstration of Vancouver architectural and design expertise with an undulating, 30-foot-high wooden wall wrapped around the corner of the historic embassy building.
