IwamotoScott Architecture is a San Francisco based architecture and design practice led by Lisa Iwamoto and Craig Scott, founded in Ann Arbor Michigan in 2000 and moved to the Bay Area in 2002.
Committed to pursuing architecture as a form of applied design research, IwamotoScott's process proceeds from the belief that each project can achieve a unique design synthesis. The practice engages in projects at all scales, and in a variety of contexts consisting of full-scale fabrications, museum installations and exhibitions, theoretical proposals, design competitions and commissioned architectural projects. Conceptual themes of the work focus on ideas of adaptation, and intensifying the experiential and performance based qualities of architecture. These conceptual approaches are pursued alongside in-depth exploration into the potentials of emerging technologies in architecture.
IwamotoScott have received numerous awards and honors including: selection by Architectural Record for their 12th annual Design Vanguard 2011, participation in the Cooper-Hewitt 4th Annual National Design Triennial; World's Coolest Office award from Architizer, Inc. and Autodesk; inclusion in Ten to Watch from California Home + Design magazine; Best of the Year Award from Interior Design magazine; Honor Award in the Wood Design Awards; a P/A Award Citation and R&D Award from Architect magazine; Grand Prize for "Hydro-Net" in the History Channel's City of the Future competition; inclusion in the Ordos 100 development in Inner Mongolia; finalist in the MoMA/PS1 YAP competition; Emerging Voices and Young Architects awards from the Architectural League of New York; California Council AIA Emerging Talent Award; seven AIA Design Awards and three I.D. Magazine Design Awards.
The work of IwamotoScott has been published widely, and exhibited in over fifty exhibitions internationally.
