AIA New Jersey Announces the 2021 Service Award Winners at Design Day





Young Architect of the Year:
Marissa Iamello, AIA

Marissa has had the pleasure of leading her local AIA section – as Immediate Past President, President, and President-Elect, through many of life’s ups and downs: a pandemic, two pregnancies, and cancer treatments. With each term, she has strived to bring successful programs to her peers as well as ample sponsorships through vendors.











Architect of the Year:
Andrew Thompson, AIA, NOMA


As an architect, Andrew reflects more on the service and mentorship he has given back to the profession and views that as his lasting legacy more than the buildings he has worked on.







Firm of the Year:
RSC Architects


RSC’s incredible year of service is reflected in our immediate-need COVID and community projects, commitment to the profession through mentorship and volunteerism, exemplary NJ healthcare and educational ventures, maintained office operations, and staff growth.









Distinguished Service Award:
Richard P. Tokarski Jr. AIA, LEED AP

Richard embodies what a servant leader is, giving back to society and his community both professionally and personally. This is exhibited through his giving of time, resources and finances through volunteering and pro-bono projects.
