Elizabeth Diller and Ricardo Scofidio, the husband-and-wife team who are two of the partners at Diller Scofidio + Renfro, have been named on the 2009 Time 100 list in the Artists and Entertainers category. The item, written by Rockwell Group founder and CEO David Rockwell, praises the couple’s work on New York City’s High Line, for which Diller, 54, and Scofidio, 74, invented a paving system that turns the former elevated train tracks into a public park. The architects also redesigned Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall. Diller and Scoidio join Jay Leno, Tina Fey and Tom Hanks in the Artists and Entertainers list, while Bernie Madoff and Timothy Geithner were named on the Builders and Titans list. The write-ups were contributed by Angelina Jolie, Leonardo DiCaprio, Craigslist founder Craig Newmark and other celebrities.
