urban design H ONOR AWARD Architect: Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with FXFOWLE and Beyer Blinder Belle Architects & Planners Client: Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts Lincoln Center Public Spaces N EW Y O RK , NY ©Iwan Baan C oinciding with its 50th anniversary and as part of its overall redevelopment process, Lincoln Center embarked upon a major initiative to modernize and revitalize the public spaces on its 16-acre urban campus. The intent was to embrace the spirit of the existing architecture by Max Abramovitz, Pietro Belluschi, Gordon Bunshaft, Wallace K. Harrison, Philip Johnson, Eero Saarinen, and Dan Kiley, incorporating elements of transparency to create a new, contemporary language for the cultural complex. To that end, the architects turned the campus inside out, extending the spectacles taking place inside the performance halls out onto the public spaces and adjoining streets. Seen through the eyes of passersby, the most visible changes are ones that link the campus with the cityscape. The Grand Stair, once separated from Columbus Avenue by a passenger drop-off road, now connects the avenue directly to the renovated plaza and central fountain (see cover); the service road and a new concourse entrance now sit beneath the Grand Stair. Once a service corridor, West 65th Street is now a pedestrian-friendly central spine for the campus. With numerous other enhancements, the transformation of the campus interweaves the disciplines of urban planning, architecture, landscape design, and information design. ■ DILLER SCOFIDIO + RENFRO PROMENADE TEAM: Elizabeth Diller, Ricardo Scofidio, AIA, Charles Renfro, AIA, Benjamin Gilmartin, AIA, Andrew Colopy, LEED AP, Pablo Garcia, Robert Condon, Matt Peterson, Laith Sayigh, Chiara Baccarini, Shawn McKinnon, Charles Curran, Peter Zuspan, Eric Howeler 65TH STREET TEAM: Jury: “Big infrastructure meets small, delicate moves, working in a setting of complex governance; excellent in scale and detail.
