Elizabeth Diller and Ricardo Scofidio of the New York City architecture firm Diller, Scofidio + Renfro discuss their design intervention to New York's Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, underway since 2006. Diller and Scofidio advocate a preservation and design approach based in metamorphosis of historic architecture. Rather than direct mimicry of existing physical fabric, Diller and Scofidio describe a preservation practice in which the inherent DNA of a site and constituent buildings is maintained in a radical yet subtle intervention that exposes latent qualities of architecture already present.
