The AIA and RAIC Recognize Significant Contributions to Architecture

Brian Healy, Design Principal, has been appointed a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects (AIA). The AIA’s Fellowship recognizes members who have made a significant contribution to architecture and society and who have achieved a standard of excellence in the profession.

With more than 30 years of experience in architectural design, Brian oversees the design direction and studio culture of the Boston office. Brian was educated at the Pennsylvania State University and the Yale School of Architecture. He has worked with some of the industry's most renowned design firms including Cesar Pelli & Associates & Richard Meier & Partners. He established his own architectural practice in Boston in 1986 where he compiled a distinguished record of creative activity, community service and professional achievement.

The 2013 Fellows will be honored at an investiture ceremony in June at the 2013 National AIA Convention in Denver.

Mary Jo Hind, Design Principal, has been appointed to the College of Fellows of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC). The College of Fellows formally recognizes members who have made outstanding contributions to the profession.

Mary Jo is based in our Dundas office and has a strong interest in integrating building architecture, landscaping and interiors into unique, site-specific design responses. She co-founded Vermeulen Hind Architects in 1992 where she led the design for numerous healthcare and oncology projects. Mary Jo graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture in 1982 from Carleton University, Ottawa, and was an Ontario Association of Architects Gold Medalist.
