Bob Miller awarded Medal of Honor American Institute of Architects Orlando

A jury of peers selected Bob Miller for the prestigious Medal of Honor, the highest honor that the Orlando American Institute of Architects can bestow on an individual. It is conferred by the AIA Board of Directors in recognition of a significant body of work of lasting influence on the theory and practice of architecture. Miller accepted the honor alongside his wife, Diane at the annual gala at the Orlando Country Club.

The Board of Directors wrote this about Miller: “Robert D. Miller, FAIA for being a true Citizen Architect by inspiring architectural excellence as a respected business leader, an elected city councilman, and a committed volunteer to local and international  organizations.”

Miller shares his thoughts about accepting the honor “Forty-three years ago Diane and I were at the University of Florida trying to make ends meet while I finished the degree in architecture. This past Saturday night the surprising and wonderful honor I received certainly affirmed Diane’s long term patient commitment and loving support of her man. I also understand how great a debt of gratitude is owed to countless individuals, especially my beloved family, as well as teachers, exemplary architects, employers, coworkers and clients. Diane and I agree it is important and… ‘a good thing to give thanks to the Lord’.”
