Lisa Iwamoto and Craig Scott

IwamotoScott Architecture, established in San Francisco in 2002, was co-founded by Lisa Iwamoto and Craig Scott. Committed to pursuing architecture as a form of applied design research, and guided by the belief that each project regardless of scope or scale can achieve a unique design synthesis, the firm has gained widespread recognition for innovation in design. IwamotoScott’s client list includes arts organizations, educational institutions, technology companies, commercial developers, and private clients. Our projects consist of work at all scales including urban design, buildings, interiors, digital fabrication projects, museum installations and exhibitions, and theoretical proposals.

Honors received by IwamotoScott include: the Cooper Hewitt National Design Award, induction into the Interior Design Hall of Fame, ACADIA’s Digital Practice Award of Excellence, Architectural Record’s Women in Architecture and Design Vanguard Awards, The Architectural League of New York’s Emerging Voices and League Prize awards, and over seventy five individual project design awards including a Progressive Architecture Award and over twenty AIA Design Awards at local, state and national levels. The work of Iwamoto and Scott has been widely exhibited and published nationally and internationally. The founding partners have lectured on the work of IwamotoScott at a wide range of institutions and venues worldwide.

Both partners continuously maintained academic careers alongside their professional practice – Lisa Iwamoto is Chair and Professor of Architecture at the College of Environmental Design at UC Berkeley, and Craig Scott is Professor of Architecture at California College of the Arts in San Francisco. Iwamoto and Scott have taught previously at University of Michigan, and as visiting faculty at Harvard University, Cornell University, Syracuse University, SCIArc, Yale University and Sydney University. Both partners received Master of Architecture with Distinction degrees from Harvard University Graduate School of Design, while Iwamoto earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Structural Engineering and Scott earned a Bachelor of Architecture from Syracuse University.

Introduced and moderated by Stephen Phillips, FAIA, PhD, Principal of Stephen Phillips Architects (SPARCHS) and professor, director, Cal Poly LA Metro Program in Architecture and Urban Design (California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo).
