Royal Australian Institute of Architects

The Australian Institute of Architects is a professional body for architects in Australia. Until August 2008, the Institute traded as the "Royal Australian Institute of Architects", which remains its official name.

The Institute consists of 11,500 members across Australia and overseas. It was formed in 1930, when state architectural institutes combined to form a unified national association. A chapter is maintained in each state, though full federation did not come about immediately, with some states resolutely maintaining their independence. The RVIA was the last to join, in 1968.[1] The Institute is represented on many national and state industry and government bodies, and is affiliated with the International Union of Architects (UIA).
