Scaffold is a podcast hosted by Matthew Blunderfield, featuring fortnightly interviews with architects, artists & designers.
For this episode, Blunderfield discusses the work of William Scott, a self-taught artist based in Oakland, California. Scott works out of a gallery and studio called Creative Growth that advances the inclusion of artists with developmental disabilities. (Scott was born schizophrenic and is also on the autistic spectrum.)
Scott Frequently describes himself as an architect, reinventing the social topography of a gentrified San Francisco, as a utopian city he calls ‘Praise Frisco’ in works that combine architectural design with civic responsibility to describe his desire for a more equitable society. The first significant survey of Scott’s 30–year practice was recently exhibited at Studio Voltaire – a London-based not–for–profit arts organisation.
