Every year, an American Institute of Architects (AIA) Jury of Fellows carefully selects individuals who have made significant contributions to the architectural profession for elevation to the College of Fellows. The 2011 class of fellows includes 104 practicing architects from within the institute's ranks. In addition, six distinguished architects practicing outside the U.S. have been granted honorary fellowship.

Elevation to fellowship honors each architect's achievements and contributions to the profession and to society at large. Only architects who have been AIA members for at least 10 years are eligible in one or more nomination categories:

  1. Promoted the profession's aesthetic, scientific, and practical efficiency;

  2. Advanced the science and art of planning and building by advancing the standards of architectural education, training, and practice;

  3. Coordinated the building industry and the profession of architecture through leadership in the AIA and other related professional organizations;

  4. Advanced the living standards of people through an improved environment; and

  5. Made the profession of ever-increasing service to society.
