DALLAS - March 4, 2014 - PRLog -- Richard Munson Miller has been elevated by the 2014 American Institute of Architects (AIA) Jury of Fellows into the distinguished College of Fellows, earning a prestigious position awarded to less than four percent of AIA members.

Miller is the Regional Practice Leader and founding Principal of Perkins+Will’s Texas Higher Education practice. Over the last ten years, he has been responsible for the completion of over 30 projects at 20 separate institutions. Miller’s projects have been honored with awards of excellence 19 times, including two AIA Honor Awards, an AASHE/USGBC Innovation in Green Building Award, the Renovation Lab-of-the-Year Award, and the Louis I. Kahn Citation for excellence in education planning and design. He regularly presents on topics addressing creative planning solutions for the critical issues being faced by educators, and is a frequent guest lecturer for regional schools of architecture.

“Richard Miller is one of those exceptional architects who can relate to a wide spectrum of clients, colleagues, allied professionals, and students with convincing credibility and uncommon ease,” said David Messersmith, FAIA, Adjunct Faculty at the UT Arlington School of Architecture and Past President of the Texas Society of Architects. “His passion and enthusiasm are infectious, and it is this persona that makes him an unusually effective ambassador for the profession of architecture.”

Miller’s elevation to Fellowship is in recognition of his broad influence on the architectural profession, including his work with higher education institutions, professional outreach, and mentorship. His career has focused on the advancement of socially responsible higher education architecture and environmental advocacy with an emphasis on management, leadership, facility planning and sustainability.

Miller is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture, and is a registered Architect and Interior Designer in Texas. He is certified by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB), and is a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Accredited Professional with specialization in Building Design and Construction (LEED AP BD+C).
