LTU Alum receives AIA 2020 Associates award
Tiffany Brown, BS Arch 2004 + M Arch 2007 + MBA 2015, has received the American Institute of Architects (AIA) 2020 Associates Award. This honor recognizes outstanding leaders and creative thinkers for significant contributions to their communities and the architecture profession.
