AIA Los Angeles - 2017 Membership Directory & Resource Guide - 174
AIA Los Angeles is honored and pleased to announce that thirteen of our members were elevated to Fellowship (FAIA) in 2017.
Fellowship celebrates Architect Members who have made significant contributions to the profession and society, who exemplify architectural excellence, and whose work has had a profound influence or ripple effect. Approximately 3 percent of the AIA's more than 90,000
members have this distinction.
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 were honored and officially elevated at the investiture ceremony during the AIA Conference on Architecture 2017 in Orlando
this April. Our Los Angeles Fellows were also honored locally at a private reception hosted by bulthaup Los Angeles.
AIA|LA thanks our 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 much appreciated.
