Who we are

AIA Fellows are recognized with the AIA’s highest membership honor for their exceptional work and contributions to architecture and society. Architects who have made significant contributions to the profession and society and who exemplify architectural excellence can become a member of the AIA College of Fellows. Only 3 percent of the AIA members have this distinction.

The College of Fellows directory currently includes members elevated to the College of Fellows in 2019, 2018, 2017 and 2016. We are currently in the process of adding members invested in previous years.
