AIA Elevates Detroit Architects to College of Fellows
The AIA has announced the elevation of 88 members and two international architects to the College of Fellows, including AIA Detroit’s own Dorian Moore, FAIA of Archive DS, and Jeff Hausman, FAIA of SmithGroup. This is an incredible achievement, as only 3% of the membership are given this distinction.
The award is reserved for architects who have made significant contributions to the profession and society and who exemplify architectural excellence. Both Dorian and Jeff have dedicated their careers to bettering the profession of architecture.
Dorian Moore, FAIA, CNU, Vice President of Archive Design Studio, is an urban designer, architect, entrepreneur, educator, and developer whose commitment to city building extends into civic leadership. With a strong commitment to redeveloping and enhancing existing urban areas, particularly where physical as well as economic challenges exist, he advocates for a strategic approach to revitalizing cities, based on precedent research and sustainable practices aimed at the long-term viability of neighborhoods, districts, corridors, and downtowns.
Jeffrey J. Hausman, FAIA, LEED AP, is Senior Vice President and Director of the Detroit & Pittsburgh Offices for SmithGroup, Inc., the 6th largest integrated architecture, engineering, and planning firm in the nation. He is also responsible for winning and leading the design of facilities that embody design excellence, innovation, sustainability, and responsiveness to the needs of nationally-recognized organizations. Jeff is a constant champion of the architectural profession. He inspires young people to explore careers in architecture through his work with educational programs at his firm, for the Michigan Architectural Foundation, and with the Boy Scouts of America (BSA).
We know that both Jeff and Dorian will be transformative additions to the AIA’s College of Fellows.
