School Chair Selected to the 2020 Class of American Institute of Architects Fellows
Each year, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) elects a new class of fellows, the highest and most prestigious level of membership among its more than 90,000 professional members. Fellows of the American Institute of Architects (FAIA) are recognized for their outstanding work and their overall contributions to architecture and society.
This year, Scott Marble, professor and William H. Harrison Chair of the Georgia Tech School of Architecture and founding partner of Marble Fairbanks Architects, joins the ranks of the AIA College of Fellows.
According to the April 2020 edition of the AIA Newsletter to its members, “Fellowship represents recognition of your significant achievement at this point in your life and it signifies the beginning of a new phase of great potential for your passion for the profession. This is your start for doing more.”
One of the responsibilities put forth by the College of Fellows is that fellows continue to use their time and talents to benefit the future of the profession and to mentor the next generation of professional architects.
“Being elevated to a Fellow is a great honor and it re-energizes me to move to the next level of practice and teaching with a greater focus on impacting the educational and professional processes to help the next generation,” said Marble.
“Through design, teaching, research, and practice, he [Marble] has worked to advance the discipline of architecture,” noted the College of Fellows. “His work merges user-centered design with advanced digital tools and technology to create novel and engaging spaces for people.”
