This lecture was recorded in Timken Lecture Hall February 01, 2010, on the San Francisco campus of California College of the Arts as part of the Spring 2010 Architecture Lecture Series.
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.
