About the AIA National Award

The Young Architects Award honors individuals who have demonstrated exceptional leadership and made significant contributions to the architecture profession early in their careers.

Efrie Escott, AIA 

Efrie is currently a Sustainability Transformation Leader promoting decarbonization at Schneider Electric. 

Escott is a past principal at Philadelphia’s KieranTimberlake, where she began her career as a research intern and created the prototype database for Tally, the first BIM-integrated life cycle assessment software. After completing her graduate studies at University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, she returned to KieranTimberlake as a full-time researcher and Tally’s most public advocate, delivering hundreds of talks on integrating life cycle thinking into design. With much success, she was then promoted to principal.

Design-based research and experiential learning are the hallmarks of Escott’s courses at Temple University and the University of Pennsylvania, both in Philadelphia.

An avid volunteer, Escott focuses on creating new relationships that support equity and climate activism. In 2017, she created a community for computational design, becoming the first female founder of a digital design user group with Philadelphia’s Dynamo User Group. She is also a leader in her local community, serving as a past co-chair of AIA Philadelphia’s Women in Architecture Committee.
