Young Architect Award

In the tradition of the American Institute of Architects’ College of Fellows, AIA Philadelphia’s Steering Committee of Fellows seeks to identify and recognize a young architect of exceptional achievement for past accomplishment and future promise.

A successful candidate must, through the materials presented to the Committee, display excellence and promise of future merit in one, two or all three of the following categories:

  • Design Excellence: through the aesthetic or scientific application for the built environment;
  • Practice: through leadership, management and/or specialized technical expertise;
  • Education: through teaching, publications and/or research;
  • Service: through exemplary service and contributions to the profession and/or society.

A candidate may choose to focus on a depth or breadth of contribution(s).

Nominees must be registered architect members of AIA Philadelphia between the ages of 25 and 39 as of the date of the application. Letters of recommendation will be accepted from any AIA Philadelphia member who has knowledge of the Nominee’s accomplishments.

For more information, call Mary Werner DeNadai, FAIA, chair of the Steering Committee of Fellows, at 610.388.0111.
