Diller Scofidio + Renfro has long been at the forefront of design. The interdisciplinary design firm, founded in 1979 by Elizabeth Diller and Ricardo Scofidio, first stirred interest with its provocative exhibitions of theoretically based projects that blurred the boundaries between art and architecture. With the addition of partner Charles Renfro in 2004, the team almost simultaneously completed two large-scale projects in New York City — the renovation of the High Line and the revitalization and expansion of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts — Diller Scofidio + Renfro galvanized the public’s attention.

Astronaut Sam Bell has a quintessentially personal encounter toward the end of his three-year stint on the Moon, where he, working alongside his computer, GERTY, sends back to Earth parcels of a resource that has helped diminish our planet’s power problems.
After the film, join Rob Morris, Assistant Education Manager at the Clark Planetarium, for a discussion of why we should go back to the Moon. Morris will explore the scientific and economic advantages of establishing a lunar outpost and how the Moon could aid us in future exploration of the Solar System.
This film is recommended for mature audiences.
