Joseph Caprile, FAIA, 2019 Inductee into the AIA National College of Fellows


AIA Chicago is proud to congratulate Joseph Caprile, FAIA, as a 2019 inductee into the AIA National College of Fellows.

Joseph Caprile has led the transformation of underutilized public and civic spaces into meaningful destinations through his real estate knowledge and architectural advocacy and vision.

An active member of Chicago’s design community, Joe served as president of AIA Chicago in 2003. In his career, his experience in architecture and construction has led to a leadership role at JLL, a global commercial real estate firm, leveraging his influence to keep good design and expert project management at the table throughout all phases of large-scale development projects. The result has led to a body of work and influence that has advanced both the real estate and architecture industries and contributed to the public good, with notable projects including Roosevelt University, Navy Pier, Chicago’s Soldier Field, and Centennia l Fountain in Cityfront Center.

"Joe brings unique architectural influence to the development of the world around us but not in a traditional sense," states Robert Forest, FAIA, AIA Chicago Board President. "Through a leadership position at JLL, Joe is helping his clients understand the role that development plays in the broader picture of the urban fabric. He is making better places for all of us."
