Reimagining Public Spaces: In Conversation with Architect Elizabeth Diller

Elizabeth Diller, 2012 Harman-Eisner Artist in Residence, The Aspen Institute and Founding Partner, Diller Scofidio + Renfro

in conversation with Damian Woetzel, Director, Aspen Institute Arts Program

How can architecture become a socially productive endeavor? By reinventing the experience of leisure, can public spaces have increased civic relevance and make an impact in the realms of politics and diplomacy? Diller Scofidio + Renfro Founding Principal Elizabeth Diller joins Arts Program Director Damian Woetzel to discuss her recent and ongoing projects – including the Hirshhorn Museum “Bubble” scheduled to open in late 2013 – and the responsibility of creative structures to address social needs. This conversation is part of the 2013 Washington Ideas Roundtable Series, and is a continuation of dialogues begun at 2012 Aspen Ideas Festival.

The Washington Ideas Roundtable Series is made possible with the generous support of Michelle Smith and the Robert H. Smith Family Foundation.
