The WA Chapter represents the interest of the Institute and all of its members in Western Australia. Working in accordance with the Institute’s strategic plan, our committees implement programs to support our members and respond to current issues and opportunities for the profession.
We also focus on advocacy, raising the bar of excellence in architecture and the built environment more broadly in WA while actively engaging with the broader community, industry partners, universities, and state and local government.
The WA Chapter recognises the Noongar people as the traditional land owners of Nedlands. We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
The Australian Institute of of Architects Awards program offers an opportunity for public and peer recognition of the innovative work of our WA architects. The program also provides the Institute with a valuable mechanism to promote architects and architecture within WA, across Australia and internationally.
The Chapter hosts continuing professional development (CPD) events that address many aspects of architectural practice.
We also conduct activities including site tours for emerging architects as well as forums addressing consumer and industry trends.
