Steven Nilles, partner in charge of Goettsch Partners’ Abu Dhabi office has been elevated to the elite College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects (AIA).
Nilles specialises in the technical design of high-rise buildings and has worked on projects throughout the UAE, Saudi Arabia, USA, China, the Czech Republic, Germany and Poland.
The fellowship programme recognises architects who have made a significant contribution to the profession, with less than 4% of AIA’s 80,000 members receiving the honour.
Goettsch Partners has offices in Chicago, Shanghai and Abu Dhabi. Five other architects from the firm received AIA fellowship in the last year.
