Scott Parker is an AIA Award-winning architect with over 25 years' experience both as an educator and practitioner. He has created an intentional diverse career that has ranged from small home additions to multi-million square foot masterplans around the world. Currently, Scott is a Project Design Director at Studio 111 in Long Beach. The firm focuses on urban renewal projects of all typologies. A studio based on its mission rather than on typological mastery.
From 1996-2003 Scott taught design studio and computer introduction and modeling classes at Cal Poly Pomona. He taught at the 1st, 2nd and 4th year level and has been on many Senior Project reviews as a guest juror in the years after 2003. In addition to teaching at Cal Poly Pomona, Scott has taught at Art Center, SciARC, Otis, USC and WDI.
As a practitioner Scott has worked for multiple firms in Los Angeles. This has allowed him to work at various scales and typologies. Prior to Studio 111 he was a partner in his own firm Johnstone Parker Architecture and an Architect at Pfeiffer Partners. His design experience at these firms has ranged from the performing arts to housing to community buildings.
While he has focused on practice since focusing on the practice of architecture, he never lost his passion for teaching. That passion has brought him back to Cal Poly Pomona.
