Speaker Bio
Born in Orange, CA, Scott began his education as a mathematician and engineer at Harvey Mudd College and transitioned to architecture at the Southern California Institute for Architecture. During his first year of graduate school, both he and Tima Bell collaborated to design and build a straw bale house for an organic farmer in San Diego, CA. This project was the start of a lasting partnership and his inspiration to continue to pursue a career of architecture, merging both art and science. In 2000, Scott began his professional career in Los Angeles, exploring the relationship between design detailing and alternative building methods. He has worked as a Senior Designer at (fer) Studio, Marmol Radziner and Crockett Architects. During this time, several of Scott’s projects received accolades and awards for design excellence. The mathematics of his youth can still be found in his clean, unencumbered aesthetic, his attention to detail and his love for fluid, dynamic forms. Scott has a love for green building techniques and novel materials. He values honesty and simplicity in architecture. His past projects ranged from $20 million multi-family developments to 15,000 sf residences. As co-founding Principal of RA, Scott has collaborated on a wide-range of design projects including urban master planning, production studios, and hospitality projects. He also directs the affordable housing arm of the studio, providing thousands of units per year to our most vulnerable populations.
