College of Fellows
Dan Maginn, FAIA
2012 College of Fellows Elevation
AIA Kansas City is pleased and excited to announce that member, Daniel Patrick Maginn, FAIA, was recently elevated to the AIA College of Fellows. Maginn, a principal at architecture firm, el dorado, was elevated under the category of practice.
The Fellowship program was developed to elevate those architects who have made a significant contribution to architecture and society and who have achieved a standard of excellence in the profession. Election to fellowship not only recognizes the achievements of architects as individuals, but also their significant contribution to architecture and society on a national level.
The 2012 Jury of Fellows from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) elevated 105 AIA members to its prestigious College of Fellows. Out of a total AIA membership of over 80,000 there are over 3,000 members distinguished with this honor.
The College of Fellows is composed of members of the Institute who are elected to Fellowship by a jury of their peers. Fellowship is one of the highest honors the AIA can bestow upon a member. Elevation to Fellowship not only recognizes the achievements of the architect as an individual but also elevates before the public and the profession those architects who have made significant contributions to architecture and to society.
Locally each year, this group facilitates and supports nominations of potential Fellows within AIA Kansas City, and hosts programs in honor of the newest fellow.
