Allison Anderson chosen for American Institute of Architects College of Fellows
The 2014 Jury of Fellows from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) has elevated Allison Hoadley Anderson, FAIA, to its prestigious College of Fellows, an honor awarded to members who have made significant contributions to the profession. She is the only architect recognized from Mississippi this year, and one of a class of 139 new Fellows.
Anderson is recognized for civic projects. After Hurricane Katrina devastated her community, designs for recovery focused attention on sustainability, adaptation and resilience. The firm she founded in Mississippi in 1995, unabridged Architecture, has been recognized for excellence in the design of community shelters, commercial and mixed-use structures, historic preservation, and civic buildings. The firm was selected by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for the Rebuild by Design competition to improve community resilience in the Hurricane Sandy-affected region.
Anderson will be honored at an investiture ceremony at the 2014 National AIA Convention and Design Exposition in Chicago.
