The AIA Los Angeles announced that thirteen of their members have been elevated to Fellowship (FAIA). Hsinming Fung, SCI-Arc faculty and Chief of Strategic Advancement & International/Special Projects is among the recipients of the prestigious honor.
"The Fellowship celebrates those architects who have achieved a standard of excellence in the profession and whose work has had a profound influence or ripple effect," according to the AIA announcement. "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."
Several SCI-Arc alums were also elevated to Fellowship including Christof Jantzen (M.Arch ’89), David Montalba (B.Arch ’96) and Annie Chu (B.Arch ’83).
The new Fellows will be honored at the investiture ceremony during the 2016 AIA National Convention in Philadelphia.
