On June 27, Kris Yao received an AIA Honorary Fellowship at the 2014 AIA Annual Convention held at Roosevelt University, Chicago
The AIA Annual Convention was held this year in the Auditorium Theater at Roosevelt University, designed by Louis Sullivan, the "father of modernism." Kris Yao and three Spanish architects were bestowed with the Hon. FAIA in the ceremony.
AIA introduced Architect Yao with the following words: "Kris Yao has demonstrated his humanity with the development of physical elements that hold true to human emotion and conditions, cultural and historical context, and a sense of scale and place. His architecture has a poetic nature, using his native eastern aesthetic and spirituality with a sense of natural light, interplay of surfaces and forms and executing all with a high level of innovation and professionalism."
