Featured Member: Daria Pizzetta Elevated to AIA College of Fellows

Daria Pizzetta, FAIA, Principal, H3 Hardy Collaboration Architecture, has had a leading role in shaping the evolution of library design nationally, as well as the discourse about the design of major public buildings and arts institutions. Pizzetta’s practice has incorporated a strong emphasis on programmatic needs to develop civic and academic buildings that are right-sized, flexible and adaptable for community use.
