Congratulations to Pennsylvania’s Newest Architects | September 2020

Join us in congratulating Pennsylvania’s newest architects! The following AIA Pennsylvania members have undergone an extensive process of education, experience, and examination to earn the title architect in 2020. Architectural licensing is exclusively granted when candidates demonstrate professional education, complete a rigorous program of practical experience under the supervision of a licensed architect and pass a comprehensive professional examination. The Pennsylvania State Architects Licensure Board is responsible for setting and upholding these regulatory standards to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public.
