The American Institute of Architects announced that Laura Heim has been elevated to the College of Fellows. Architects who have made significant contributions to the profession and society and who exemplify architectural excellence are members of the AIA College of Fellows. Only 3 percent of the AIA members have this distinction. The Investiture of Fellows Ceremony, with receipt of fellowship medal, was held as part of the AIA National Conference on Architecture 2018 in NYC on June 22, 2018 at St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
