2018 Fellow Jennifer Wright, AIA is using the award to establish and sustain a series of construction workshops for women in the profession of architecture. Wright’s experience as an architect, writer, Chair of AIA Portland Committee on Equity, Diversity & Inclusion and dedication to research on the need for construction education for women in architecture has made her a phenomenal candidate for this work.
2017 Fellow Rick Potestio, AIA has engaged a career-long study of middle-scale urban housing and the sense of community that derives from these walkable neighborhoods. Rick is using the award to compile his research into graphic tools to be utilized by planners, designers and the public, to help illustrate proposed planning concepts across Oregon.
Since 2001, AFO has partnered with The Van Evera and Janet M. Bailey Fund of The Oregon Community Foundation in awarding the $25,000 annual Van Evera Bailey Fellowship to advance the professional development of experienced architects and related professionals and encourage greater contributions to their profession and community.
