Alissa Rupp Has Been Named FAIA

As a leader in the design of places for informal education and lifelong learning, Alissa’s work is rooted in her dedication to architecture as a force for improved public life where art, nature, culture and play intersect.

Her work has expanded the profession, brought rich stories to life and harnessed the strength of an international practice to benefit people of all ages and cultural institutions of all scales.

Alissa leads projects and the MIG | Portico office with constant attention to the visitor experience—fostering the widest definition of “client,” to include the staff, visitors and flora and fauna of the project site. Examples of this work can be found at the new KidsQuest Children’s Museum, the Brookfield Zoo Hamill Family Wild Encounters and the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park.

As a result of these significant contributions, Alissa was recognized by the AIA College of Fellows in 2017.

Congratulations, Alissa, on this momentous accomplishment!
