Architecture of Life Lectures | Containers: Charles Renfro on the new BAMPFA building
January 27, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
After attending Rice University and Columbia, Charles Renfro joined the interdisciplinary architecture studio of Elizabeth Diller and Ricardo Scofidio in 1997. He became a partner in 2004. The architecture studio, now called Diller Scofidio + Renfro, has presided over numerous influential projects, including the design of the High Line park and the redevelopment of Lincoln Center in New York. Their most recent projects include the Broad Museum and the new Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAMPFA). Speaking about the new BAMPFA, Renfro says, “We’ve found a middle ground between making highly expressive architecture and also a highly respectful vessel for art.”
