diller scofidio + renfro: hypar pavilion
diller scofidio + renfro recently completed their latest project, hypar pavilion, at new york’s lincoln center. the pavilion
is located in the center’s north plaza and houses a restaurant. the design consists of a twisted roof top that in covered
with grass, allowing visitors to climb up to use the space as a park. the rooftop measures 7,200 square feet and touches
down to the ground on one end, where there are steps leading up. the restaurant inside, holds 160 diners and 40 people
at the bar with a long open kitchen plan. the intention of the project was to create a restaurant in the square that didn’t
take away usable space for visitors looking to relax.
