Lab Talk: Charles Berman, DS+R

Storrs IDR Lab

The School of Architecture presents Charles Berman in a Lab Talk, "The SHED: Techniques + Technics."

Charles Berman is Associate Principal at Diller Scofidio + Renfro in New York City. Opening in spring 2019, The Shed will be New York’s first arts center dedicated to commissioning, producing, and presenting all types of performing arts, visual arts, and popular culture. The Shed’s building— an innovative 200,000-square-foot (18,500 m²) structure designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Rockwell Group—is designed to physically transform to support artists' most ambitious ideas. Its eight-level base building includes two levels of gallery space, a versatile theater, a rehearsal space, a creative lab, and a skylit event space; a telescoping outer shell can deploy from its position over the base building and glide along rails onto an adjoining plaza to double the building’s footprint for large-scale performances, installations, and events.
