Approximately 3 percent of the AIA’s 90,000+ members have this distinction. According to the AIA, “The College of Fellows, founded in 1952, is composed of members of the Institute who are elected to Fellowship by a jury of their peers. Fellowship is one of the highest honors the AIA can bestow upon a member. Elevation to Fellowship not only recognizes the achievements of the architect as an individual but also elevates before the public and the profession those architects who have made significant contributions to architecture and to society.”

The new Fellows will be recognized during events at the 2017 AIA Conference on Architecture in Orlando, including the Illinois School of Architecture’s reception on Thursday, April 27, at 5 p.m. in the Hyatt Regency Orlando.
