Congratulations to Mark Ripple, FAIA for his elevation into the AIA College of Fellows.
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.
“It is an honor to join the ranks of such a prestigious group of renowned professionals; I’m truly humbled by this experience and thankful to my peers for their recommendations and kind words,” said Mark Ripple, FAIA. “Although AIA Fellowship is focused on personal recognition, it is most certainly a testament to the amazing talents and achievements of the entire team here at Eskew+Dumez+Ripple, and those with whom I have had the privilege of working for the last twenty-six years.”
In over 30 years of professional practice Mark Ripple, FAIA, principal of New Orleans based firm Eskew+Dumez+Ripple, has developed specialized experience in the management of large institutional projects. Having successfully completed a wide range of multi-disciplinary projects in both the private and public sector, his career has grown rapidly though his tenacious commitment to project expectations.
