AIA elevates 152 members and two international architects to the College of Fellows

The 2018 Jury of Fellows from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) elevated 152 member-architects to its prestigious College of Fellows, an honor awarded to members who have made significant contributions to the architecture profession. The fellows will be honored at a ceremony on June 22 at the AIA Conference on Architecture 2018 in New York City.

The fellowship program was developed to elevate those architects who have achieved a standard of excellence in the profession and made a significant contribution to architecture and society on a national level. Prospective candidates must have at least 10 years of AIA membership and demonstrated influence in at least one of the following categories:

  • Promoted the aesthetic, scientific, and practical efficiency of the profession;
  • Advanced the science and art of planning and building by advancing the standards of architectural education, training or practice;
  • Coordinated the building industry and the profession of architecture through leadership in the AIA or other related professional organizations; or
  • Advanced the living standards of people through an improved environment.

The stringent requirements result in only three percent of the AIA’s more than 91,000 members being recognized as fellows. Currently, there are 3,425 living fellows globally.

Fellows are selected by a seven-member Jury of Fellows. This year’s jury included Karen Nichols, FAIA (Chair), Michael Graves Architecture & Design; Peter Bardwell, FAIA, Bardwell + Associates, LLC; Mary A. Burke, FAIA, Burke Design and Architecture PLLC; Philip Castillo, FAIA, JAHN; Mary P. Cox, FAIA, Virginia Commonwealth University; Paul Mankins, FAIA, Substance architecture and David Messersmith, FAIA, University of Texas.  The newly elevated members and their AIA component affiliations are listed below.
