Seattle, Washington – March 28, 2023 – LMN Architects is pleased to announce the addition of Scott Crawford to the firm partnership. The addition to the firm’s leadership underscores LMN’s commitment to the continual evolution of the design practice.

The addition of Scott Crawford to the partnership at LMN Architects is a significant step forward for the firm’s commitment to innovation; expanding its capacity to address complex, multidisciplinary design challenges; and developing new modes of working. Over the past 14 years, Scott’s tireless dedication to experimentation and discovery has elevated the firm’s work and transformed its ability to tackle ambitious design projects such as Octave 9: Raisbeck Music Center, the Cleveland Convention Center & Civic Core, and Voxman Music Building at the University of Iowa. His deep passion for learning, coupled with his curiosity about the design and construction process, has enabled him to forge exceptional relationships with consultants and builders, leading to truly unique design solutions.

“LMN is excited to welcome Scott to the partnership,” says Partner Julie Adams. “Scott’s contributions to the firm and the building industry have been transformative. His diverse interests and skills, combined with his commitment to teaching and collaboration represent a fundamental shift in the way we design and build. Through authentic curiosity and persistence of intent, he has helped to create digital and fabrication processes that compel complex design explorations to mature into built realization.”

As a founding member of LMN’s Tech Studio, Scott has played a crucial role in enhancing the firm’s ability to undertake complex, multidisciplinary design challenges. He prioritizes open communication with clients and collaborators throughout the creative process, constantly exploring new materials, novel fabrication techniques, and sustainable design strategies. With the inauguration of LMN’s new Shop, Scott’s technological and fabrication expertise will further expand the firm’s ability to innovate and create in-house. Scott’s dedication extends beyond the firm, as he has taught and given lectures across North America, fostering the design dialogue in many communities through fabrication and interaction.

Prior to joining LMN in 2009, Scott earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Maryland and a Master of Architecture and Master of Science in Design Computing from the University of Washington. With the addition of Scott Crawford to the firm partnership, LMN can advance new ways of working and create even more groundbreaking designs, while fostering a strong design culture and broadening collaborations.
