We’re interested in the human experience. We’re interested in the social aspect of urbanity. The sustainable aspects – yes it goes to water and resources – but it’s also about life and human experience and creating beloved spaces. Creating spaces that people really embrace.

Scott Baker is President of RELM. As a champion of urban landscapes, he has catalytically transformed
the Southland with commissions at LAPD Headquarters, Santa Monica College, Long Beach Airport, and soon, UCSD’s downtown campus, Park and Market. Scott’s fervent drive to cultivate urban life has earned him tremendous recognition. He leads Metro’s largest TOC initiatives—Ivy Station, NOHO, and Crenshaw Crossing—masterful in transforming transit, mixed use, and urban nature into beloved landscapes. He is leading a variety of projects statewide: the New Natural Resources Headquarters, John Burroughs Middle School and the Consolidated Car Rental facility at LAX after opening three of Los Angeles’ largest building projects in 2017: Wilshire Grand, Metropolis, and USC Village in 2017. Scott applies his sensibilities, strong in both urban design and landscape architecture, to projects of all scales and typologies including education, civic, transportation, and hospitality. He is a gifted public speaker and serves as RELM’s Managing Principal on projects.
