About the International Chapter

The International Chapter comprises the international membership of the Australian Institute of Architects.

The Australian Institute of Architects is the peak body for the Australian architectural profession, representing 11,500 members across Australia and overseas. The Institute actively works to improve the quality of our built environment by promoting quality, responsible and sustainable design.

  • the International Chapter Architecture Awards, a tailored Awards program for projects outside of Australia, as part of the Institute’s National Architecture Awards
  • numerous prizes recognizing significant contributions to architecture internationally
  • Boarding Pass events for members to meet in key locations around the globe
