Charles Renfro, AIA (Baytown, Texas in 1964), joined the studio DillerScofidio+Renfro in 1997 and became Partner in 2004. He attended Rice University and received a Master of Architecture degree from Columbia University. Mr. Renfro is currently a Visiting Professor at Parsons New School for Design.
DILLER SCOFIDIO & RENFRO is an interdisciplinary design studio that integrates architecture, the visual arts, and the performing arts while investigating issues of contemporary culture such as the spatial conventions of the everyday, the influence of media technologies on architecture, the changing definitions of domesticity, and the institution in the public realm.
Based in New York City, Diller Scofidio + Renfro is led by three partners who work collaboratively with a staff of 100 architects, artists and administrators. DS+R was the first architecture firm to receive a MacArthur "genius" grant and it also won an Obie for Jet Lag, a wildly creative piece of multimedia off-Broadway theater.
"DS+R" bring a groundbreaking approach to big and small projects in architecture, urban design and art, playing with new materials, tampering with space and spectacle in ways that make you look twice.
