About Fellowship in the AIA

The Fellowship program was developed to elevate those architects who have made a significant contribution to architecture and society and who have achieved a standard of excellence in the profession. Election to fellowship not only recognizes the achievements of architects as individuals, but also their significant contribution to architecture and society on a national level.


The 2016 Jury of Fellows from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) elevated 149 AIA members to its prestigious College of Fellows. Out of a total AIA membership of over 88,000 there are over 3,200 members distinguished with this honor.


The 2016 Fellows will be honored at an investiture ceremony at the 2016 National AIA Convention
