Prestigious Fellowship Bestowed Upon Prominent Orange County Architect

SANTA ANA, Calif., Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MVE Institutional (MVEI) is honored to announce that Ernesto Vasquez, FAIA, NCARB, Chairman & CEO of MVEI has been elevated to the prestigious College of Fellows by the American Institute of Architects. The American Institute of Architects (AIA) is the leading membership organization for architects and emerging professionals since 1857, serving the architectural community through advocacy, information, and community. The AIA Fellowship program recognizes architects with significant achievements and contributions to the profession. Mr. Vasquez was selected by the 2014 Jury of Fellows as one of 139 AIA members to the College of Fellows. Of the 80,000 AIA members, only 3,000 members have been recognized with this distinguished honor, less than 4%.

Mr. Vasquez has been President of MVEI since it was founded in 2003. In 2013, he became Chairman and CEO. Known for creating environments that are socially and environmentally responsible, as well as economically viable, Mr. Vasquez is widely renowned as a community advocate and leader.  His award-winning design aesthetic incorporates smart-growth principles and promotes public transit and improved educational environments. Mr. Vasquez currently serves on the Board of Directors of Bridge Housing, with leadership roles with nonprofit agencies such as ABODE Communities, The Wooden Floor, and The National Park Foundation.

Jeffrey Gill, FAIA, Executive Director of AIA Orange County, says, "The AIA awards Fellowship to the architects that possess the rare combination of design ability, management expertise, and the desire to mentor: individuals that have proven to reach beyond the norm and better their communities. I can't think of a more deserving individual than Ernesto Vasquez. It's a great honor to have Ernesto among our (3) Orange County honorees this year."

Founded in 2003, MVE Institutional has become one of the Country's most innovative and respected design and planning organizations.  The award-winning firm specializes in planning, architecture, and interior design of corporate, public, mixed-use residential and student housing, as well as institutional facilities.  MVE Institutional values institutional and public environments as the foundation of a community and the backdrop against which we live, learn, work, worship, and play.  The company is headquartered in Santa Ana with offices in Oakland, San Diego, and Honolulu.  For more information, visit www.mve-institutional.com
