The Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) is a professional body for architects in Australia.

The Australian Institute of Architects is the peak body for the Australian architectural profession, representing almost 11,000 members, and works to improve the Australian built environment by promoting quality, responsible, sustainable design.[citation needed]

Purpose[edit]

The Australian Institute of Architects exists to:

  • advance the interests of members, their professional standards and contemporary practice
  • expand and advocate the value of architects and architecture to the sustainable growth of our community, economy and culture

History[edit]

A number of states formed professional societies for architects, including the Queensland Institute of Architects.[1]

The Australian Institute was formed in 1930, when state architectural institutes combined to form a unified national association. A chapter is now maintained in each state and territory, though full federation did not come about immediately, with some states resolutely maintaining their independence. The RVIA was the last to join, in 1968.[2] The Institute is represented on many national and state industry and government bodies, and is affiliated with the International Union of Architects (UIA).
