An Omen For DS+R?

DS+R's Charles Renfro on the Red Carpet (actually the "white" carpet, since Crest was the sponsor).

The red carpet is not a place where architects usually spend their time. But on Sunday Diller Scofidio + Renfro took home a Breakthrough Award, for their work in architecture. The prizes, handed out at the Pacific Design Center (AN was there believe it or not..) went to emerging performers like The Kids Are Alright’s Josh Hutcherson (Actor in Film) and Modern Family’s Sophia Vergara (Actress in TV). So how did Architecture wind up on the roster? “We’ve noticed that architects are starting to be known by name again,” said Jan Hall, Marketing Director for MMC, which runs the competition. On Monday, we’ll find out if DS+R win Eli Broad’s coveted new museum commission downtown. If they do, they’ll no doubt catapult into the elite starchitect sphere… Perhaps this is a harbinger of things to come?

    Didn’t the High Line, Lincoln Center, and the Berkeley Art Museum already catapult them into that sphere?

    Didn’t the landscape architecture firm Field Operation Design the High Line? Oh yeah, they did, only these folks never fail to take credit for it.
