2014 AIA Honorary Membership

Page Tools

Honorary membership is one of the highest honors that The American Institute of Architects can bestow upon a person outside the profession of architecture. Election to honorary membership may be granted to any person of esteemed character who is otherwise ineligible for membership in the Institute but who has rendered distinguished service to the profession of architecture or to the arts and sciences allied therewith. Membership is granted only if the accomplishments of the nominee are truly outstanding and of national significance. View all 2014 AIA Awards Recipients.
