Ballinger Senior Principal Craig S. Spangler, FAIA, was elevated to the prestigious College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), a distinction given to those making significant contributions to the profession and society that only three percent of AIA’s nearly 100,000 members receive.

Since joining the firm in 1995, Craig’s broadly celebrated projects have significantly contributed to advancing academic science teaching and research building design. He has led the design of significant buildings at notable institutions across the country including the University of Maryland, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Swarthmore College, George Washington University, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and Yale University, amongst many others.

Craig was nominated by Ballinger’s Terry D. Steelman, FAIA, LEED AP who described him as “a modest yet passionate architect with an uncompromising drive for design excellence. He is motivated by the purposeful nature of the work that improves life for all. Craig’s knowledge of science and engineering learning and discovery, coupled with his architectural creativity and passion for crafting meaningful places, is truly rare in our profession,” said Terry.

Craig joins Ballinger Senior Principals Terry D. Steelman, FAIA, LEED AP and Louis A. Meilink, Jr., FAIA, FACHA, ACHE in the College of Fellows. New fellows will be honored at a ceremony on June 7, 2024 at the national AIA Conference in Washington, D.C.
