2018 Hall of Fame Inductees: Lisa Iwamoto and Craig Scott

"These two are a dominating force in the hi-tech workplace scene in San Francisco. A power couple in work (and life), Lisa Iwamoto and Craig Scott founded IwamotoScott with a desire to create spaces—whether art installations to interiors to building to cities—that are progressive, impressive and stunning. They recently completed Pinterest (Part 1 immediately followed down the street by Part 2) and Bloomberg Media, and Twitch among others. In addition, they are also constantly giving back. Both are teachers, having given the first decade of their career as professors, and still teach today at University of California, Berkeley and California College of the Arts. Their commitment to EDUCATION and the FUTURE generation of designers—while also holding to high standard of experimentation and innovation in every project—makes them truly today’s minds for a better tomorrow! I am honored to induct both Lisa and Craig into Interior Design’s Hall of Fame on November 29th, 2018."

Lisa Iwamoto and Craig Scott: Titans of Tech

Lisa Iwamoto and Craig Scott founded IwamotoScott, an award-winning and internationally recognized architecture practice established in San Francisco. The firm creates innovative designs at all scales, with work spanning art installations, workplaces, buildings, and visionary cities. Educators at heart, both Iwamoto and Scott have taught throughout their careers. Both Iwamoto and Scott received Master of Architecture degrees from Harvard University. Iwamoto is currently Professor of Architecture at the University of California, Berkeley, where she was named the inaugural Doris and Clarence Malo Collegium Teaching Chair in Design, and where her design research concentrates on the perceptual performance of material and digital fabrication techniques. Scott is Professor of Architecture at California College of the Arts in San Francisco, where his teaching focus is on Advanced Studios, Core Studios, and Architectural Analysis.

Architecture continually informs and is informed by its modes of representation and construction, perhaps never more so than now, when digital media and emerging technologies are rapidly expanding what we conceive to be formally, spatially, and materially possible.
