Cambridge, MA – The 2017 Jury of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) recenlty elevated Jocelyn Frederick, principal at Tsoi/Kobus & Associates in Cambridge, to its prestigious College of Fellows, an honor awarded to members who have made significant contributions to the profession.
Frederick will be honored at an investiture ceremony at the AIA Conference on Architecture 2017 in Orlando, April 27-29.
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.
Out of a total AIA membership of over 90,000, approximately 3 percent are distinguished with the honor of fellowship and honorary fellowship.
