Bruner/Cott Principal and Partner Jason Forney has been elevated to the AIA College of Fellows!
As the AIA’s highest membership honor, the fellowship program recognizes individuals for their exceptional work and contributions to architecture and society. Those elevated to Fellowship represent a standard of professional excellence at the national level–only 3 percent of AIA members have this distinction.
His work demonstrates a commitment to securing a new future for the built environment through sustainable and regenerative design and the transformative reuse of existing structures. As a Bruner/Cott principal and partner, Jason has expanded the firm’s mission to include exemplary contemporary architecture whose ecological performance and emotional resonance are informed by lessons of the past.
Jason joined Bruner/Cott in 2002 and has played a major role in the design of many of Bruner/Cott’s notable projects, including the second and third phases of MASS MoCA, the Living-Certified R.W. Kern Center at Hampshire College, the Powerhouse at Amherst College, the Lunder Arts Center at Lesley University, and the Kofi Annan Institute for Global Citizenship at Macalester College.
He will be honored among his newly-elevated peers in May at a ceremony during the AIA Conference on Architecture 2020 in Los Angeles, CA.
