Kathleen Lechleiter, Lecturer in the School of Architecture + Planning and President and Founder of Twopoint Studio, LLC, has been elevated to the 2024 College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the Institute's highest membership honor. The honor recognizes members for "significant contributions to the architecture profession". Three percent of AIA members have this distinction.

Kathleen's practice model eradicates housing insecurity and instability for underserved people. By combining design, teaching, and public engagement, she enacts solutions to homelessness, advances fair housing development, promotes sustainability, and builds healthy, equitable communities. Her practice centers on providing marginalized residents stable places to live, to build equity, and to achieve economic opportunity. From her practice to academic and community engagement, she consistently supports the residents within our neighborhoods and challenges her students to prioritize the communities we serve.

Congratulations to Kathleen!
