Ms. Diller is a Professor of Architecture at Princeton University. She married with Ricardo Scofidio.

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.
