SCOTT MORRIS

Scott joined BLUR Workshop after sixteen years with tvsdesign, where he guided a diverse group of project types from project conception through construction administration. He is an excellent designer, a well-rounded architect, and has a natural propensity for leadership. He is calm under pressure, and his ability to visualize and organize his project teams results in a well-organized and coordinated project delivery. Scott is very hands-on, often designing, drawing, and working on the computer to prepare master plans and concept designs.

Scott has spent the last ten years primarily focused on hospitality projects, complementing a career of broader experience in mixed use, public assembly, residential, and office projects. He also has a wide variety of experiences as it relates to large international projects. This has helped to broaden his perspective and exposed him to unique systems and processes in the projects he has participated in Asia, the Middle East, and the Caribbean.

Some of the more recent notable completed projects Scott has led include Jabal Al Ka’aba, the largest hotel in the world, located in Makkah, Saudi Arabia, the 1175 key Washington Marriott Marquis, and the JW San Antonio Hill Country Resort Expansion. Either in the role of Project Manager or Project Architect, Scott was highly influential in conception of the design and the successful execution of the work. Currently Scott is Project Managing multiple projects for Ryman including a guestroom and convention space expansion for their Gaylord Palms property in Florida and a water park facility for the Opryland Hotel in Nashville.

In 2014 Scott retired as a Lieutenant Colonel from the United States Army Reserve, having served 21 years. He was deployed to Afghanistan for two one-year tours in 2005 and again in 2010, where he served as a facility engineer and a combat theater master planner. Throughout his military career, Scott was involved in master planning, facility design and construction projects that spanned the globe, to include El Salvador, Honduras, Bahamas, Egypt, Korea, Afghanistan, and the US. He has clearly benefited from leading teams in difficult and challenging circumstances.
