In his 37 years in architecture, William J. Stanley has practiced with some of the premier design firms in Atlanta, New York, Detroit, Europe, and Africa. The first African-American graduate of the College of Architecture at the Georgia Institute of Technology (1972), Bill became the South’s youngest African American ever to receive his registration as an architect. In addition to receiving numerous design awards, Bill was the 1995 recipient of the Whitney M. Young, Jr. Award, given by the American Institute of Architects to the country's most socially conscious architect. In 2000, AIA/Georgia bestowed upon him the Bernard Rothschild Medal, the state’s highest award. As a pioneer who has ventured into uncharted waters and paved the way for others, Ivenue Love-Stanley is an inspiration. In 1977 she became the first African-American woman to graduate from the Georgia Institute of Technology’s College of Architecture. She was also the first African-American woman to be registered as a licensed architect in the South. Ivenue’s contributions stretch well beyond architectural design, as she is greatly involved in community service work, inspiring others to follow in her professional and personal footsteps. In 2014 she received Whitney M. Young, Jr. Award from the American Institute of Architects, making the Stanley Love-Stanleys the only married couple in the U.S. to share this honor
