McLain Museum in Nome, Alaska and the redesign of Fort Calgary's 10,000 sf interpretive centre.
Knowing that every aspect of a space communicates—Scot Geib's experience positions him to offer consistent and multi-dimensional expression of a message, story, or identity. Scot has also taught design at Emily Carr University of Art and Design and Bellingham’s Western Washington University. He is currently an instructor of design at Langara College in the Design Formation Program. Scot Geib has a passion for asking challenging questions about purpose, content and goals. A believer in creating relevant and engaging cultural experiences, Scot presented to the Canadian Museum Association conference his paper, “Designing Museums for People Who Hate Museums”.
PUBLIC Architecture builds culture and shape identity. Their work creates spatial experiences–beyond buildings–to the city at large, capable of spurring transformation, engagement and renewal. PUBLIC Architecture works with people who are passionate about building collective experience and memory–who understand that small interventions woven throughout the city can have as bold an impact on community as megaprojects. They work with people who believe you get the best results through taking risks.
