Lecture: Lisa Iwamoto - Recent Work

Lisa Iwamoto teaches design studios and graduate seminars at UC Berkeley. Her book, Digital Fabrications: Architectural and Material Techniques, was published in July of 2009 by Princeton Architectural Press as part of their series on Architectural Briefs. Lisa is partner of IwamotoScott Architecture, a practice formed in partnership with Craig Scott and committed to pursue architecture as a form of applied design in research. Join AIA East Bay's Women in Architecture Committee for a lecture on her recent work.

At IwamotoScott Architecture, Lisa Iwamoto 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’s work has been published widely nationally and internationally. Recent projects include: Voussoir Cloud, SCIArc Gallery, Los Angeles; ORDOS100; Hydronet, the winning scheme for City of the Future: San Francisco 2108; REEF, PS1 Young Architects Program 2007; and Jellyfish House, a theoretical house design incorporating ambient technologies for the Vitra Design Museum’s exhibition OPEN HOUSE. As an Associate Professor in the Department of Architecture at The University of California, Berkeley, Iwamoto's research focuses on digital fabrication and material technologies for architecture.
