American Institute of Architects elevates one local architect to the College of Fellows

American Institute of Architects elevates one local architect to the College of Fellows - Less than three percent of the architecture profession achieve AIA Fellowship.

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) is elevating one AIA member from AIA Grand Rapids to its prestigious College of Fellows, AIA’s highest membership honor, for his exceptional work and contributions to architecture and society.  Less than three percent of the architecture profession achieve AIA Fellowship.

 

The fellowship program was developed to elevate those architects who have achieved a standard of excellence in the profession and made a significant contribution to architecture and society on a national level. Architects who have been elevated to fellowship can be identified by the designation FAIA after their name.

 

Included in the list below are the newly elevated members from AIA Grand Rapids:

 

Brian K. Craig, FAIA of Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University

 

Educator-Architect Brian Craig, FAIA, helped to create a newly accredited professional Master of Architecture program at Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University. Craig served as the first KCAD Director of the Graduate Program in Architecture and led the design, implementation, and accreditation of the program, while also teaching in it. He continues to teach in the program and has plans to retire from KCAD at the end of the Spring 2020 Semester. Craig will remain engaged as an advisor.

 

Visit AIA National’s website for more information on College of Fellows or to view the complete list of newly elevated architect fellows. New fellows will be honored at a ceremony in May at the AIA Conference on Architecture 2020 in Los Angeles.
