Charles Renfro is a partner at Diller Scofidio + Renfro, an interdisciplinary design studio based in New York. DS+R completed two of the largest architecture and planning initiatives in New York City’s recent history: the adaptive reuse of an obsolete, industrial rail infrastructure into the High Line, and the transformation of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts’ half-century-old campus. Recently completed projects include The Broad contemporary art museum in Los Angeles, The Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive in California, the Roy and Diana Vagelos Education Center in New York, and Zaryadye Park in Moscow. Renfro is currently leading the design of the new Adelaide Contemporary, a gallery and public sculpture park in South Australia, as well as the design of two projects in China: The Tianjin Juilliard School, Juilliard’s first international campus, and a new complex for leather goods manufacturer Dissona in Dongguan. Renfro is the recipient of Wall Street Journal Magazine‘s 2017 Architecture Innovator of the Year Award, the Texas Medal of the Arts Award, and is a National Academy Academician.
