Congratulations to Jeffrey Daniels, Director of the Arc+ID Program, for being elevated to Fellow by American Institute of Architects!

Jeff_FAIAWe are delighted to share the exciting news that our very own Jeffrey Daniels, Architect and Director of the Architecture + Interior Design Program at UCLA Extension, has been officially elevated to the College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects! The distinction recognizes the achievements of architects as individuals as well as their significant contributions to architecture and to society.

Daniels, a licensed architect with more than 30 years of experience, directs the Master of Interior Architecture Degree program at UCLA Extension. He studied architecture as an undergraduate at Princeton University and received his master’s degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

When he came to Los Angeles, he apprenticed for Frank Gehry on such projects as the Loyola Law School. The architectural works designed by Jeffrey Daniels Architects include the David Hockney residence; the Edythe and Eli Broad Painting Studios for the California Institute of the Arts; restaurant interiors for Chaya Brasserie, among others; and the award-winning Kentucky Fried Chicken building on Western Avenue. In 2013, Daniels’ work was exhibited as part of “Overdrive: LA Constructs the Future,” an architectural exhibit at the Getty Museum and the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C.

Congratulations on this prestigious honor!

Congratulations to Angela Lee, winner of the $500 NEWH Los Angeles Founding Chapter scholarship!

We are proud to announce that Angela Lee, a student who was just admitted to the UCLA Extension/Cal Poly Pomona Master of Interior Architecture program, is the recipient of the $500 NEWH Los Angeles Founding Chapter scholarship! “It is truly an amazing feeling to be recognized by such a great organization,” Angela stated.


Angela completed the Certificate of Interior Design and whole-heartedly recommends that anyone looking to pursue an interior design education choose UCLA Extension. “The instructors are working professionals with varying backgrounds and all have a great deal of experience. I find them an invaluable resource on the realities of working in the field,” she explains, “also, firms know about the quality of designers that graduate each year.” As someone who knew she wanted to pursue interior design since her junior year of high school, Angela was ready to jump right in. “I dove in headfirst and it has been the best decision I’ve made thus far.”

Congratulations Angela!
