Item description for Diller + Scofidio (+ Renfro): The Ciliary Function by Guido Incerti, Daria Ricchi, Deane Simpson, Reinhold Martin, Manuel Castells, Marta Rondon & David Mungello...

The ciliary muscle reproduces the effect of a lens and allows the eye to focus or blur vision. It became the emblem of the critical vision that Diller + Scofidio (+ Renfro) had in their research and experimentation, including most recently the High Line park design for New York City. Their interdisciplinary projects range from objects, installations, and performances to media and architecture. In recent years they have expanded– with a third partner joining their studio–to embrace projects on a larger urban scale.
Diller + Scofidio (+Renfro) covers their development, documenting about twenty works, for the earliest to the most recent. It also includes essays investigating the studio's contect, influences and strategies; some interviews with the architects; and a scheme showing the evolutiuon and growth of the studio from 1979 to today.
Guido Incerti is an architect based in Venice. Daria Ricchi, based in Florence, is a critic and journalist specializing in contemporary architecture. She has recently published a monograph on the work of Mecanoo. Deane Simpson is an architect based in New York and Zurich, and a former associated of Diller+Scofidio. Simpson teaches design at the ETH of Zurich.

Reviews - What do customers think about Diller + Scofidio (+ Renfro): The Ciliary Function?

t r a n s f i x e d !  Mar 18, 2008
Transfixed by a dedication to a range of theatricality that has been answered in their ascension--to a built maturity--by appropriating our physiology into their architecture: the blush, the heartbeat, the ciliary function . . . the gasp. We as the readers and the users have been subsumed into their theatre as actors as well!
