Elevated to Fellowship

Congratulations to AIA Pittsburgh’s Rob Pfaffmann, who was among the 178 member architects inducted into the College of Fellows for 2017.  The Fellows program was developed to elevate 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. Pfaffmann, founder and Principal of Pfaffmann + Associates, is also a past AIA Pittsburgh Board President.  Three Pfaffmann + Associates projects—the Port Authority’s Gateway Station, Fort Duquesne & Sixth Garage and the Meadowcroft Rockshelter—have received Silver Medals at AIA Pittsburgh’s Design Awards, the Chapter’s highest honor.
