As the Vice President of Creative / R & D for Walt Disney Imagineering, Scott looked for opportunities to combine various media, technologies and narrative forms to tell new stories and create innovative entertainment experiences. Scott started his career in the worlds of Film and Theatre, (Scott graduated from USC’s film school), and continues to drive innovation through his oversight of the both the Blue Sky Creative and New Technology development groups for Walt Disney Imagineering.
Culture of IDEAS
Organized by Professor Greg Lynn, the Culture of IDEAS Lecture Series will show that an engagement with popular and commercial culture combined with a specific critical vision yields not only culturally relevant design work, but more importantly, creative and innovative design. By focusing on contemporary issues of experience, technology, craft, urbanism or commerce the role of the architect is expanded and empowered in new ways by these lecturers. Presenters will return to UCLA in June to participate in our annual RUMBLE symposium.
