American Institute of Architects elevates Lee Coplan to the College of Fellows

Baltimore, MD (February 25, 2020) – The American Institute of Architects (AIA) is elevating Lee Coplan, FAIA, of AIA Baltimore to its prestigious College of Fellows, AIA’s highest membership honor, for his exceptional work and contributions to architecture and society. Less than three percent of the architecture profession achieve AIA Fellowship.
The Fellowship program was developed to elevate those architects who have achieved a standard of excellence in the profession and made a significant contribution to architecture and society on a national level. Architects who have been elevated to Fellowship can be identified by the designation FAIA after their name.
Lee Coplan, FAIA, is being elevated to the College of Fellows for exceptional practice management, particularly at Hord Coplan Macht. Influencing through service to the Institute and the profession, Coplan redefined design firm culture by championing diversity, continuous learning, and mentoring young architects to thrive as leaders of a collaborative, multidiscipline national practice.
Visit AIA National’s website for more information on College of Fellows or to view the complete list of newly elevated architect fellows. New fellows will be honored at a ceremony in May at the AIA Conference on Architecture 2020 in Los Angeles.
