Joseph Wong, 50, is one of the 62 architects elected to the College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects at the annual conference in May. The College of Fellows (COF) of The American Institute of Architects (AIA), founded in 1952, is composed of members of the Institute who are elected to Fellowship by a jury of their peers. Fellowship is one of the highest honors the AIA can bestow upon a member. Elevation to Fellowship not only recognizes the achievements of the architect as an individual but also elevates before the public and the profession those architects who have made significant contributions to architecture and to society. Mr. Wong received master's degrees from UC Berkeley and Harvard. He founded his own company, Joseph Wong Design Associates (JWDA) in 1977 in San Diego, California. JWDA has completed a broad range of projects for both the public and private sectors and received over 50 local and national awards for design excellence.
