Firm of Lisa Iwamoto MArch ’93, Craig Scott MArch ’94 wins Ivy Tech Columbus project

IwamotoScott Architecture, the San Francisco-based architecture and design firm founded by Lisa Iwamoto MArch ’93 and Craig Scott MArch ’94, has been selected as the winner of a competitive invited RFP process to design the new 80,000 sq foot main campus building for Ivy Tech in Columbus, Indiana. The College anticipates breaking ground in 2020 and taking occupancy in 2022. “It is a true honor to be able to add to Columbus’ modern architectural heritage,” Iwamoto and Scott said. “The team from IwamotoScott showed true vision for what the future of Ivy Tech in Columbus could look like,” said Ivy Tech Columbus Chancellor Steven Combs. “Their concepts of how to use available space for a modern and advanced campus were well received by our community and employees.”

The project is supported by The Cummins Foundation and aims to continue the design excellence and modern architectural legacy they’ve established in Columbus. Other finalists in the process included SO-IL, Marlon Blackwell, nArchitects, and Snow Kreilich.
