The inaugural SAH Change Agent Award will be presented to the partners of the New York architecture firm Diller Scofidio + RenfroElizabeth Diller, Ricardo Scofidio, Charles Renfro and Benjamin Gilmartin—at a reception at the Century Club in midtown Manhattan. 
 
DS+R’s work involves an interdisciplinary approach to design that encompasses art, architecture, digital media, and large-scale planning, with a focus on cultural and civic projects. Their Manhattan work includes the creation of the High Line (in collaboration with James Corner Field Operations and Piet Oudolf), the redesign of Lincoln Center, the current renovation of the Museum of Modern Art, and the newly-opened Bloomberg Building, home of The Shed, a multi-disciplinary arts center that moves on rails and can be reconfigured from the base of the DS+R condominium and apartment tower at 15 Hudson Yards.

The Change Agent Award will be presented during a reception featuring a short talk by Liz Diller about some of the firm’s most recent and in-progress local projects, followed by a conversation with the four firm partners and Martino Stierli, The Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at The Museum of Modern Art. The evening will conclude with a cocktail reception and hors d’oeuvres.
