On Friday, February 10th, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) announced that SOM Design Partner Gary Haney has been elected to its College of Fellows, a prestigious honor awarded to members who have made significant contributions to the profession.
The fellowship program, founded in 1952, is one of the highest honors the AIA can bestow upon a member. 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. Out of a total AIA membership of over 90,000, approximately 3 percent of members are recognized as fellows.
As a Design Partner in SOM's New York office, Gary Haney employs a research-intensive, performance-driven design approach. He has designed buildings of great scale and complexity including Al Hamra Tower in Kuwait City; Al Sharq Tower in Dubai; the LEED® Gold-certified U.S. Census Bureau Headquarters in Suitland, Maryland; the BBVA Operations Center in Mexico City; and PSAC II, a state-of-the-art public safety answering center in New York City.
