Diller Scofidio + Renfro recently completed their latest project, Hypar Pavilion at New York City’s Lincoln Center. The pavilion is located in the center’s north plaza and houses a restaurant. The design consists of a twisted rooftop that in covered with grass, allowing visitors to climb up to use the space as a park. The rooftop measures 7,200 square feet and touches down to the ground on one end, where there are steps leading up. The restaurant inside holds 160 diners and 40 people at the bar with a long open kitchen plan. The intention of the project was to create a restaurant in the square that didn’t take away usable space for visitors looking to relax.
The piece is made of rotation-moulded plastic and is shaped to mimic the landscape of the film’s setting in a digital world. The chairs are are on show at Design Miami this week.
Shohei Shigematsu, partner at OMA, talks about architecture in the financial crisis at U Laval in Canada. Basing his speech on research of how past financial crises have affected architecture in the past, he relates historical precedent to his current projects, including the Milstein Hall at Cornell and OMA’s winning entry for the extension of the Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec (MNBAQ).
