Over the past eight years, the interdisciplinary design studioDiller Scofidio + Renfro (DS+R)transformed the fifty-year-old modernist citadel into a porous and democratic campus. The new monograph Lincoln Center Inside Out: An Architectural Account is the first comprehensive document to feature the extensive redevelopment in its entirety. Through a combination of photographs, drawings, renderings, archival records, texts and interviews the book describes the innovative strategies that have dissolved the public/private divide and effectively turned the campus inside out, extending the spectacle of the performance halls into the Center’s mute public spaces and surrounding streets. Lincoln Center Inside Out, conceived as a cross between an art book, a scholarly record and an architectural diary, is comprised entirely of gatefolds. The book is a series of inside out spreads, in which the exterior pages of each feature large-format photographs by Iwan Baan and Matthew Monteith, among other acclaimed photographers. Tucked behind these lush photos, is a series of “back stories” that reveal the evolution and unexpected afterlife of the same spaces. The book can therefore be read in two ways as a photo essay documenting the construction process and the completed campus, or as a collection of rich and experimental ephemera.
