Robert J. Hotes, AIA, LEED AP, has been selected by the American Architectural Foundation and the French Heritage Society as the 2011 Richard Morris Hunt Fellow.
The Richard Morris Hunt Fellowship, a program of the American Architectural Foundation and the French Heritage Society, is awarded to architects pursuing a career in historic preservation.
