About the AIA

The Australian Institute of Architects is a national body consisting of 9000 members across Australia and overseas. The Institute was formed in 1930 when state architectural Institutes combined to form a unified national association with the following aims:


  • To advance architecture
  • To maintain the integrity and standing of the profession
  • To promote the profession’s views nationally and internationally, and
  • To encourage the study of architecture

Since then, the Institute has evolved into a dynamic and progressive national organisation with active programs in many areas relating to the architectural profession. We also provide services to other sectors of the community.

By promoting better, responsible and environmental design, the Institute actively lobbies to maintain and improve the quality of our built environment. Raising de-sign standards in our cities, urban areas, commercial and residential buildings, architects and the AIA have a major role in shaping Australia’s future.

AIA3The AIA has established the highest professional standards. AIA architects are encouraged to undertake Continuing Professional Development (CPD), are obliged to behave in accordance with our Code of Professional Conduct and as a result are more likely to be better informed and more up-to-date on all matters architectural.

The AIA is represented on dozens of national and state industry and government bodies, and is affiliated with the Union International Architecture (UIA).
