Lecture by Lisa Iwamoto and Craig Scott

IwamotoScott is a San Francisco–based architecture and design practice led by Lisa Iwamoto and Craig Scott. The firm’s approach centers on amplifying the perceptual performance of architecture, establishing strong environmental and site relationships, and pursuing innovation in use of material, fabrication techniques, and configuration of space. Responses to project circumstances and client requirements continue along multiple lines of inquiry, and generative concepts are tested through speculative form-finding and iterative modeling in both physical and digital media.

The lecture, “Architectural Adaptations,” will survey the pursuit of architecture as a form of applied design research, covering projects at multiple scales and in a variety of contexts: full-scale fabrications, museum installations and exhibitions, theoretical proposals, competitions, and commissioned designed projects.

Both partners received master of architecture degrees with distinction from Harvard University. Iwamoto is an associate professor at UC Berkeley. Scott is an associate professor of Architecture at CCA. He taught previously at the University of Michigan, Yale University, and Harvard University.

Generous support for CCA public programs in San Francisco has been provided by Grants for the Arts / San Francisco Hotel Tax Fund. The Architecture Lecture Series is funded by McCall Design Group; Pfau Long Architecture; Jensen Architects; ARCH Drafting and Art Supplies; GCI Inc.; Hellmuth, Obata & Kassabaum, Inc.; Perkins+Will; Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP; and SRG Partnership.
