Products & Materials Library

Introducing Products & Materials Library 

A unique opportunity to connect with architects


Researching products and materials that meet project and compliance requirements is reported to be a time-consuming process for our members.

Our Products & Materials Library provides an easy to access, online catalogue for our members to search, scroll and save products, materials, and fixtures that meet unique search requirements required through procurement which are otherwise unsearchable in other online forums.

This service is available exclusively to Australian Institute of Architects members through Community—our member-only online platform designed to facilitate collaboration, member connectivity and generate ideas and discussions.

All products listed must conform to appropriate Australian Standards and comply with the requirements of the National Construction Code to ensure our members have a trusted and reputable source of providers to work with.

This unique opportunity allows architects to narrow their search via a trusted platform and fast-track enquiries and purchases for your products and materials.

  • Gain exposure to the most senior representatives of Australian architecture.
  • Reach a highly targeted and engaged audience of specifiers.
  • Build brand awareness and align your brand with the leading professional body for architecture and design.
  • All supported by an activation plan to increase awareness, collaboration, dwell time and return visits to our Community platform.
  • Members can search and save at their leisure to create their own list of preferred products, fixtures, and materials from the library.
