About

Adam Scott Cook’s work focuses on the dialogue between art and architecture. His work is expressed through his sculptures and designs using wide range of materials. He also finds simple forms and ideas in today’s buildings and captures them through digital photography. Cook’s methodology behind his creations is to use his knowledge from his formal education in artistic studies as the basis, build on his background and experience in architecture, and continue to gain inspiration from his travels throughout the world. Having concepts that are both distinctive and explorative Adam Scott Cook strives to be an auteur in all aspects of art, architecture, and their construction.

Adam Scott Cook is a native of Baltimore who has studied architecture and sculpture locally and internationally. Throughout his college career, Cook worked fulltime for several architectural firms learning and experiencing all facets of architecture from conceptual design through construction. He has worked on several mixed use projects in the flourishing neighborhood of Harbor East. Recently, Cook was a Project Architect on the Four Seasons Hotel, the first five-star hotel in Baltimore, Maryland.
