Steve White

White’s Numerous Achievements Grant Him Recognition by the AIA College of Fellows

Fentress Architects is proud to announce Steve White has been elevated to the American Institute of Architects (AIA) College of Fellows in recognition of the meaningful contributions he has made over the past 25 years to the architectural profession in the transformation of historically significant buildings and sites for contemporary uses. Only three percent of all AIA members hold the title of Fellow, which is conferred annually to a select group of leaders through a competitive jury process. Steve will be honored and bestowed with a Fellowship Medal at the AIA National Convention to be held during May 2020 in Los Angeles.

Since 2014, Steve has served as Director of the DC Office of Fentress, a position to which he brings more than 25 years of experience designing contextually-responsive, urban infill projects. He practices with a deep commitment to collaboration and design excellence. Steve’s portfolio is replete with prestigious commissions and repeat clients including the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Washington, DC; the renovation and expansion to the East Building of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC; the Finance Street Office Building in Beijing, China; the new Huntsville, Alabama U.S. Courthouse for the GSA, the Morehead Cain Foundation at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and the new National Museum of Intelligence and Special Operations in northern Virginia. Steve’s commitment to collaboration and excellence has also engendered the trust and respect of colleagues resulting in appointments to serve as a National Peer for the GSA National Register of Peer Professionals, a certified expert witness for the DC Board of Zoning Adjustment, and the 2015 President of the Washington DC Chapter of the AIA.
