One of the highest honors that AIA awards, Fellowship celebrates practitioners with at least ten years of Architect 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 2023 (A’23) in San Francisco this June. Our Los Angeles Fellows will also be honored locally this summer at a private reception.
AIA|LA thanks our 2022-23 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, 73 AIA members were elevated to this honor. To view a list of all the new Fellows nationwide, please visit https://www.aia.org/college-of-fellows.
