Diller + Scofidio + Renfro: Fox and Fowle Architects Street of the Arts Lincoln Center New York, New York

Lincoln Center has unveiled the conceptual design for a dynamic new "Street of the Arts" spanning West 65th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.
The design by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Fox and Fowle Architects embraces the spirit of the original 1960s architecture, while incorporating elements of transparency and fluidity to create a new language celebrating the vitality of the cultural complex today.
"We imagine a Lincoln Center that is more Lincoln Center than Lincoln Center. Rather than replace the image of this cultural icon with one alien to it, we propose to amplify its most successful features and fulfill its unrealized potential. The challenge is to interpret the genetic code of this 'Monumental Modernism' into a language for younger, more diverse audiences following several generations of cultural and political change. We would like to turn the campus inside-out by extending the intensity within the performance halls into the mute public spaces between those halls and the surrounding streets. The range of the project's scope requires an effort that dissolves boundaries between urban planning, architecture, streetscape and landscape design."
Liz Diller

The West 65th Street project will feature new street-level entrances, transparent street-level facades, dramatic lighting, elegant modernist variations on the traditional theater marquee, and informational and directional signage to give a strong street identity to each of the seven constituents and facilitate visitor orientation. The cultural corridor will also provide easy access to new indoor and outdoor facilities for dining and refreshments.

Central to the project is the proposed reconfiguration of 65th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue. The street would be narrowed, the curb cuts in the center of the block removed, and the sidewalk expanded.
A narrow, translucent footbridge that opens up the street to sunlight and enhances visibility would span West 65th Street. Paul Milstein Plaza could be configured to encompass the reflecting pool and terrace in the North Plaza, further enhancing the overall unity of the new design.

Another component of the project entails a building program for the public spaces of the North Plaza, which would include new landscape elements and programming. A new campus green would provide an oasis for students and the public to gather day and night.
The lyrical design features a gently sloping paraboloid public green oriented toward the reflecting pool. The lawn forms the roof of a signature restaurant, creating a building that combines an indoor public restaurant with an outdoor public space fusing landscape and architecture.
The iconic reflecting pool with its Henry Moore sculpture would be elongated and fitted with a black terrazzo plinth that subtly dips and rises below and above the plaza surface, with a thin layer of water cascading over the sides.
A major architectural feature is a new dance studio that is suspended inside the transparent lobby of Alice Tully Hall in a distinctive wedge shape.
At street level along West 65th Street, the now solid travertine base of the school will be opened up with a transparent new facade.

The Juilliard expansion will form a dramatic cantilevered canopy over Tully Hall's new soaring glass outer lobby and open public space at the corner of West 65th Street and Broadway, offering substantial street visibility and establishing an unmistakable presence on Broadway.

The Film Society of Lincoln Center, home to the prestigious New York Film Festival, will build a new state-of-the-art film presentation and education complex with a 90-foot street-level presence on the south side of 65th Street.
It is anticipated that the interior of this complex will be designed by David Rockwell of the Rockwell Group, which has tendered exciting preliminary drawings.
An expanded lobby and a dramatic new West 65th Street entrance leading to both the Vivian Beaumont and Mitzi E. Newhouse Theaters with a floating glass facade and marquee would be created for this distinctive Saarinen-designed building. The opening up of the theater to pedestrians and drivers passing by will serve to increase the visibility of the building and provide a new "front door."

The entrance for the Samuel B. and David Rose Building, located on 65th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenues, will be redesigned, creating an inviting, glass-enclosed lobby with improved security. A new pedestrian circulation hub would connect the Rose Building and Juilliard, producing a prominent street presence and joining the plaza level lobby with new escalators and stairs from the street, a pedestrian footbridge from the North Plaza and a small crossing from Juilliard's student lounge.Current view of the corner of Broadway and 65th Street looking at the north side of the street.

Diller Scofidio + Renfro leads a design team that includes Fox and Fowle Architects, L'Observatoire International, Inc., Cooper Robertson & Partners, and 2 X 4. The project is scheduled to begin construction in 2006 and completed in 2009.

Lincoln Center's newest expansion will begin with the October 2004 opening of Jazz at Lincoln Center in the 100,000-square-foot Frederick P. Rose Hall at Columbus Circle, designed by Rafael Vinoly.
