George H. Miller, FAIA, has been chosen to serve as president of the American Institute of Architects in 2010. Miller, a partner at New York-based Pei Cobb Freed & Partners Architects, was elected by AIA delegates during the institute’s national convention in Boston last week. He is the first New York City architect to hold the top AIA post in more than three decades, since the late Max Urbahn was president in 1971, according to an article in The Architect’s Newspaper. A Berlin native, Miller grew up in the U.S. and received his B. Arch from Pennsylvania State University in 1973. During his 33-year tenure at Pei Cobb Freed, he has worked on many large projects such as the Hyatt Center in Chicago (2005), the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia (2003), and the Myerson Symphony Center in Dallas (1989). Miller presided over the AIA New York chapter in 2003 and currently is the AIA’s vice president; he will serve as AIA first vice president in 2009, according to the AIA. Other election results include: Walter J. Hainsfurther, AIA, and Pamela J. Loeffelman, FAIA, were chosen to serve two-year vice presidential terms beginning in December 2008; Stephen K. Loos, AIA, was elected to serve a two-year term as secretary, also starting in December 2008.
