It’s certainly not easy to be elected into the American Institute of Architect’s prestigious College of Fellows; there is a lengthy application that is then reviewed by a jury. Only select architects across the nation were appointed to Fellow this year – including Emily Grandstaff-Rice. The AIA explains what it takes to be Fellow: “The 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 the architect as an individual, but also honors before the public and the profession a model architect who has made a significant contribution to architecture and society on a national level.”
Congrats to Emily for attaining this honor: well deserved!
