“The faculty in the College of Architecture, Design and Construction join me in congratulating Dinos Liollio and Michael Malone on this well-deserved recognition,” says Dean Vini Nathan. “Dinos and Michael join a distinguished group of Auburn architecture alums who embody the highest aspirations of the profession and do us proud every day.”
Elevation to Fellow is an honor bestowed selectively upon AIA members who have made significant contributions over time to the profession, to their local communities and to society on a national level. The selection process is rigorous and represents the highest honor the AIA can confer upon an individual licensed-architect member; approximately three percent of AIA’s 88,000+ members have this distinction. The 2017 AIA Fellows from around the country were honored at an investiture ceremony at the AIA Convention in Orlando on April 28.
