Mariko Masuoka, Principal at Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, has been elevated to The College of Fellows of The American Institute of Architects. This prestigious honor is given to architects who have made significant contributions to the architecture profession and society on a national level. Mariko now represents only three percent of the AIA’s total membership distinguished with this fellowship.
Mariko has led academic and civic projects of all scales for the firm, including the recently completed Yale Science Building at Yale University and 76 Trinity Place in New York City. Other noteworthy projects include Yale-National University of Singapore College campus in Singapore and the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Chemistry Building at The Ohio State University, among others. Mariko sees architecture as a way to address human needs and solve societal problems through art and science.
Mariko will receive a Fellowship medal during an Investiture of Fellows Ceremony in 2020.
