This seems to be a very good year for Diller Scofidio + Renfro: The opening of The Highline (a project in collaboration with Field Operations), the competition for the Audio and Image Museum in Brazil, the Creative Arts Center at Brown, the Alice Tully Hall at the Lincoln Center in New York…
And now, thanks to architectural photographer Iwan Baan, we present you the recently completed Juilliard School, part of the major redevelopment plan for the Lincoln Center, project on which DS+R has been working with FXFOWLE.
The details on this project are stunning, specially the stairs.

Dutch photographer Iwan Baan shared with us this great photographs he took for Domus Magazine’s June edition. This building is a part of the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in NYC and it was created thanks to the donoations of Alice Tully, a chamber music benefactor and patron of the arts. This is the first major renovation since the Juilliard School building, designed by Pietro Belluschi, opened in 1969.
More images after the break, and you can check the complete photoset over here.
The commission was to design a 220 apartment housing complex for people for low income families in Guangzhou. Urbanus decided to give the complex a nice and intimate atmosphere, by reinterpreting the traditional Hakka Houses. This housing typology correspond to 300 year old houses in the south of China, and as you can see on some pictures after the jump, they are basically a large housing project where complete families live as a community (aunts, nieces, nephews, etc.)

Architecture photographer Iwan Baan just shared with us a photo set of the latest Herzog & de Meuron building in Spain, the Espacio de las Artes at Santa Cruz, Tenerife. Another H&dM building for Spain, after the Caixa Forum (Madrid) and the Forum building (Barcelona).
With over 20,622 sqm, the building includes a public library, a contemporary art museum, the Photography Centre of the Tenerife Island, a store, a cafe/restaurant and several public use spaces for the community.
The building is a long volume intersected by a ramp that generates a triangular plaza. Along the facade, over 1,200 openings in 720 different shapes filter the natural light to the inside, while generating an amazing view during night.
During the opening, Jaques Herzog said that this building will change the image of Tenerife, and along with the Calatrava auditorium will turn the city into a cultural focus.
And now, the photographs by Iwan Baan:
If you usually take a look at the photo credits on the projects we publish every day, then you already know who Iwan Baan is. But in case you haven’t, Iwan Baan is a dutch photographer that has been documenting works from the best contemporary architects, such as OMA, SANAA, Steven Holl, Sou Fujimoto, Toyo Ito, Zaha Hadid, Michael Maltzan and Diller Scofidio + Renfro, moving away from the traditional static architecture photography.
He’s always moving between London, Amsterdam, Paris, New York or Beijing, where he has been documenting the construction of OMA’s China Central Television (CCTV) building, alongside Herzog & de Meuron’s Olympic Stadium and other 2008 Olympic projects in Beijing.
For those of you in London, the Architectural Association Gallery is hosting an exhibition on Iwan Baan’s work(with installation views by Sue Barr) from Nov 10th to Dec 10th. Also, on Nov 21th Iwan will be at a roundtable at the AA Lecture Hall.
I take this opportunity to thank Iwan for letting us use his photos on ArchDaily, helping us to bring you the best buildings around the world with high quality photos – Thanks Iwan!
