Scott Sørli's transdisciplinary practice concerns itself with moments when form and matter engage the economic and political forces that produce the city. He was co-founder of convenience, a window gallery that provided an opening for art that engages, experiments, and takes risks with architectural, urban, and civic realms.

Sørli has taught architecture at several institutions, including in Jakarta, Cambridge, Sudbury, and Toronto.
