AIA is a US-based professional organization that exists to protect and serve architects and design professionals. It was founded in 1857, it aims to monitor legislative issues that impact the public and the profession, recognize and promote excellence in architectural design, technology, and design-related issues, and create a community that promotes knowledge sharing and has a positive effect on the architecture profession, society, and the world as a whole.
The AIA International Region is the broadest geographical region of the American Institute of Architects, providing a collaborative leadership platform to empower members and encourage global success through best practice, innovative thinking, and design excellence. Collectively, these awards recognize the ability of outstanding architecture to inspire our fellow practitioners, governments, and the public throughout the AIA International region and the world.
