Scott Specht is founder and principal of internationally acclaimed Specht Architects, inventor of the self-sufficient zeroHouse™, and a frequent speaker on where things are headed (and where they’ve been) in the world of architecture, design, and engineering. He has been featured at conferences and on video presentations sponsored by such hosts as TEDx Talks, Dyson, Indeed, the American Institute of Architects, and The University of Texas at Austin. 

Scott has received numerous awards for his work from organizations such as the American Institute of Architects, The Architectural League of New York, and Architectural Record. He has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, the New York TimesThe New Yorker, Architectural Digest, and hundreds of other publications. His firm was listed frequently in the “Top 100” architects by New York magazine, and his most recent book, Coffee Lids, has received acclaim for its unusual take on the design of “unseen objects” that populate our daily lives.

Specht Architects’ work includes residential, commercial and university-based projects, including the The Carpenter, an environmentally sustainable adaptive re-use of a former Carpenter’s Union complex, and Casa Xixim, a completely off-the-grid bio-resort in Tulum. The zeroHouse™, a high-performance, self-sufficient house established Specht as an international design leader in the micro-dwelling movement. Prior to his work at Specht Architects, Scott was a consulting designer for Studio Daniel Libeskind in Berlin, and worked with that firm on its winning New York World Trade Center planning competition scheme. Scott was also a designer with Deborah Berke Architect, and Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, both in New York.
