IwamotoScott Architecture was recently honored at the 2017 Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) conference with the Digital Practice Award of Excellence for their innovative work in digital design processes and commitment to employing new technologies in the production of architecture.
ACADIA’s annual conference was held Nov. 2-4, 2017 at MIT, and welcomed top experts in the field of design computing for peer-reviewed presentations of papers, projects and special exhibitions. ACADIA was formed for the purpose of facilitating communication and critical thinking regarding the use of computers in architecture, planning and building science. The organization is committed to the research and development of computational methods that enhance design creativity, rather than simply production.

IwamotoScott Architecture is a San Francisco based architecture and design practice led by Lisa Iwamoto and Craig Scott. Since founding the partnership in 2002, they have maintained an experimental and design intensive office, evolving the conceptual nature of the practice together. The firm is committed to pursuing architecture as a form of applied design research, and engages in projects at multiple scales and in a variety of contexts consisting of full-scale fabrications, museum installations and exhibitions, theoretical proposals, competitions and commissioned design projects.
IwamotoScott has received numerous awards including the Architectural League’s Emerging Voices and Young Architects, Architectural Record’s Design Vanguard, over twenty AIA Design Awards, a P/A Award and numerous other architecture and interior awards. Their work has been published in hundreds of journals and exhibited in over fifty museums and galleries.
