Introducing 2020 AIA Fellows

Congratulations to the three AIA Dallas members to receive the 2020 distinction.

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.

Out of a total AIA membership of over 95,000, less than three percent are distinguished with the honor of fellowship and honorary fellowship. Please extend your congratulations to your peers on their outstanding achievement.

The AIA Dallas members elevated to Fellow are:
