About Us

The Fellows Committee seeks to stimulate a sharing of interests among Chapter Fellows, promote the purposes of the Institute, advance the profession of architecture, mentor young architects, and be of ever-increasing service to society.

The AIA Fellowship 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.

So how does one go about becoming a Fellow? Architect members of the AIA who have been in good standing for at least ten cumulative years may be nominated for Fellowship by their Chapter or by a petition signed by any five Fellows or any ten AIA members. In addition, each candidate must be sponsored by either an FAIA or AIA member in good standing. The sponsor provides a one-page letter of introduction to the jury that includes specific reasons why the candidate deserves to be a Fellow.  The AIA Northern Virginia Fellows Committee is here to help you through the process.  Please reach out via email to [email protected].

Alexandria, Va.Designed by Conkey | architects What started out as a simple window replacement to take advantage of spectacular views of the Potomac River blossomed into a completely transformative renovation. This home, one of eighty-three built in an early 1970’s neo-colonial style development common to that era, was never meant to have a river view when it was originally designed.
