An independent jury has chosen Lisa Iwamoto (far right), a professor of architecture at the College of Environmental Design, as one of five winners of Architectural Record’s fifth annual Women in Architecture awards.
Founded in 2014, the awards series recognizes design leadership across five categories and promotes the visibility and contributions of women to the field.
Iwamoto, who was chosen as the New Generation Leader, is an architect and structural engineer who co-founded the San Francisco-based architecture office, IwamotoScott Architecture. The firm was chosen as one of the Architectural League’s Emerging Voices in 2007 and won a RECORD Design Vanguard award in 2011. Iwamoto received a BS in structural engineering from the University of Colorado and an M.Arch with distinction from Harvard University.
The jurors who selected the 2018 honorees included the Architectural League’s executive director Rosalie Genevro, KPF principal Jill Lerner, architecture critic and Record contributing editor Sarah Williams Goldhagen, SO-IL co-founder Jing Liu, Ennead partner Tomas Rossant, and The San Francisco Chronicle’s urban design critic John King.
Other award recipients include Elizabeth Diller, Upali Nanda, Peggy Deamer, and Ellen Dunham-Jones.
