Kerwin, Lee named AIA Fellows

Thomas P. Kerwin and Frank Christopher Lee are the only two Chicagoans among the list of 76 inductees into the American Institute of Architects College of Fellows this week. For those keeping score, this compares with eight from New York and L.A., seven from San Francisco, and three from Boston, Philadelphia and Denver. Also named for Central Illinois was Ron Budzinski of PSA Dewberry in Peoria.

Kerwin, managing partner at the Chicago office of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, is one of the key leaders in Chicago's push to land the 2016 Olympics while Lee, of the firm Johnson & Lee, was recently named chief architect for the reconstruction of Adler & Sullivan's Pilgrim Baptist Church in Bronzeville, gutted in a January, 2006 fire.
