Liz Diller: Making Space for the Future


Deeply influenced by her family’s 1960 escape from fierce antisemitism in Poland, trailblazing architect Liz Diller is on a provocative quest to redesign how we live, play, study, and work. Highlighting past projects like NYC’s High Line and exciting new projects in progress, Liz Diller: Making Space for the Future explores the power of architecture to drive cultural progress and democratic inclusion.
