Lincoln Center Facelift

A look at the progress in New York's Lincoln Center, as architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro look to refresh the aging public space.

Metropolis Magazine's Ariel Davis paid a visit:

"The other day I checked out the latest phase of Diller Scofidio + Renfro's ongoing facelift of Lincoln Center, a new outdoor-seating area called Barclays Capital Grove (catchy name!) located just north of the Metropolitan Opera House. Although its official opening isn't until August, the grove has been available for use since May-thankfully, since it offers more of what the Lincoln Center campus has always sorely lacked: public places to sit and meet."
