Elizabeth Diller and Ricardo Scofidio established the architectural firm of Diller + Scofidio in the late '70's. For fifteen years they focused on performance; collaborations with choreographers, writers and directors; and architectural projects realized in an art world setting. Considered among the most intellectually unique architectural teams working today, their media-based work expands the conventional boundaries of architecture. Determined to widen the realm of architectural creation, Diller and Scofidio produce groundbreaking, original work that holds a mirror up to the society that consumes it. In Aberrant Architectures? Diller + Scofidio at the Whitney Museum the team walks us through their mid-career retrospective, presenting a variety of pieces and providing insight into their design process.

We've been working together since 1979 so I guess we would consider this a spattering or sampling of works that could actually be brought into these museum walls that have some kind of even tangential, logical connections with one another and if you move from space to space or gallery to gallery you'll see certian themes that keep coming through the work.
