We’re so excited to say that Ricardo Maga Rojas has been announced as an AIA Associates Award Winner for 2021! It’s an incredible accomplishment for GFF’s “citizen architect” and we could not be more proud of the role he plays in his community. Ricardo is a member of GFF’s Austin Office and received a Bachelor of Architecture from Tuskegee University in 2013 and a Master of Urban Planning from Texas A&M University in 2016. The AIA Associates Award is given to individual Associate AIA members to recognize outstanding leaders and creative thinkers for significant contributions to their communities and the architecture profession.
Ricardo had this to say about the honor:
It is both an honor and a privilege to be recognized by the American Institute of Architects as one of three recipients for the 2021 Associates Award. I am immensely grateful primarily to my Ancestors – whose shoulders I stand on, my family, champions, and friends I made along the way. Without the friendships, collaboration, counsel, and support this award is meaningless.
