AIA College of Fellows Ceremony

May 15, 2015, Patrick Ahearn was inducted into the College of Fellows in The American Institute of Architects.

The College of Fellows is composed of members of the Institute who are elevated to Fellowship by a jury of their peers. Fellowship is one of the highest honors the AIA can bestow upon a member. Elevation to Fellowship not only recognizes the achievement of the architect as an individual, but also elevates before the public and the profession those architects who have made significant contributions to architecture and to society.

Patrick reflects on the last 42 years of his practice and the journey it is has been. “It is a day of celebration for me and I am looking forward to many years in the future to continue the good works that I do.” Patrick attended the ceremony with his wife, daughter, and sister.  The ceremony was held in the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia.

We are pleased to announce that Patrick has been elected to The College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects.

The 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 architects as individuals, but also their significant contribution to architecture and society on a national level.

The 2015 Jury of Fellows from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) elevated 147 AIA members to its prestigious College of Fellows. Out of a total AIA membership of over 85,000 there are over 3,200 members distinguished with this honor.

The 2015 Fellows will be honored at an investiture ceremony at the AIA Convention 2015 in Atlanta.
