Scott M B Gustafson

Adjunct Faculty
Department of Architecture

My passion and specialty is the creation of building and spaces that delight all the body's senses. The human experience of the world is multi-sensory, and much of our time is spent in designed spaces, both indoors and outside. Bad lighting, harsh sounds, uncomfortable seating, ugly signage, and flimsy materials attack our senses and dignity at every turn. My goal is to design places that make people feel comfortable, welcomed, cared for and loved. In this environment we are well poised to do our best work, to live life richly, foster meaningful connections and feel at peace.

I am a registered architect in the states of Arizona, Illinois, Indiana and Michigan and the countries of Denmark, Iceland, and Sweden. I am a registered Interior Designer in the states of Illinois and Indiana.
