Fountain Update #1: Lincoln Center Keeps 'Em

[Renderings courtesy Diller Scofidio + Renfro/FXFowle]

New details out today about the Diller Scofidio + Renfro overhaul of Lincoln Center, including these views of the revamped plaza. As the world turns, it's not all that revamped after all, the architects being loathe to mess with the iconic fountain that defines the plaza. The NYT's Robin Pogrebin reports, "In what is perhaps the most striking structural change, the new submerged roadway will dip to Lincoln Center's existing concourse level. A staircase will now extend over that area. From the underground concourse, visitors can take an elevator or escalator up to the plaza, or use concourse-level entrances to the three main performance sites." Taste the excitement, people, with two more images harvested from the official Lincoln Center website after the jump; previously released renderings can be revisited here.
