AIA Los Angeles Congratulates Our New Fellows for 2020
February 25, 2020 – Los Angeles—AIA Los Angeles is pleased and proud to announce that thirteen of our Chapter members have been elevated to Fellowship (signified by the initials FAIA.)
One of the highest honors that AIA awards, Fellowship celebrates Architect Members with at least ten years of membership, who have made significant contributions to the profession and to society, who exemplify architectural excellence, and whose work has had a profound influence or ripple effect.
Fellowship may be bestowed in one of several categories:
1) Design, Urban Design, or Preservation; 2) Education, Research, Literature, or Practice (with the option of a subcategory of Management or Technical Advancement); 3) Led the Institute or a Related Organization; 4) Public Service, Government, Industry, or Organization; or 5) Alternative Career, Volunteer Work with Organizations Not Directly Connected with the Built Environment, or Service to Society.
The new Fellows will receive their Fellowship medal during the Investiture at the AIA Conference on Architecture 2020 (A’20), here in Los Angeles. Their Investiture ceremony will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, May 15, 2020 at the legendary Orpheum Theatre on Broadway. Our Los Angeles Fellows will also be honored locally this summer at a private reception.
AIA|LA thanks our 2019-20 Fellows Nominating & Mentoring Committee, and everyone who supported our nominees as sponsors, reference letter writers and mentors. Their experience, advice and encouragement are crucial to a successful nomination, and are extremely appreciated.
This year, 116 AIA members and 5 international architects were elevated to Fellow. You can view a list of all the new Fellows nationwide at https://www.aia.org/college-of-fellows.
