Scott Sarver

RATIO I smdp, Principal


The great design-city of Chicago is his home, but Scott Sarver is often on the other side of the International Date Line. Throughout his career, he has been a prolific designer, creating dynamic urban projects for private developers in more than 40 countries. Sarver believes design requires listening over speaking, responding to culture and place, and respect for the fundamental economics. Each project should energize and enhance a community. His current work spans typologies and geographies from high-rise mixed-use centers to one of the largest entertainment complexes in the world.

Sarver started the Chicago studio with Dae-Hong Minn in 2009 to create lasting value for international and domestic clients and to foster an environment of creativity and expression for designers.
