Melissa Farling and Alan McGuinn, alumni of the UNC Charlotte School of Architecture, will be named Fellows of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) at the organization’s national convention being held June 26 - 28 in Chicago. This AIA honor is bestowed upon architects who have made a significant contribution to architecture and society on a national level and who have achieved an exemplary standard of excellence in the profession.
Farling is currently a project and research director at Jones Studio, located in Phoenix. She actively investigates the effects of architecture on behavior. In her 25 years as a professional architect, Farling has focused on large-scale public projects, successfully applying research to designs for correctional facilities, courthouses, land ports of entry, K-12 and higher education facilities, behavioral health facilities, commercial projects and private residences.
McGuinn lives in Asheville, where his work focuses on engaging the public and building consensus through collaborative design practices. In 2006, he co-founded the Asheville Design Center, a nonprofit organization that seeks to create healthy, thriving and equitable communities in western North Carolina through community-based design.
