The Australian Institute of ARchitects
The peak body for architecture
We represent over 11,500 members globally, committed to raising design standards and positively shaping the places where we live, work and meet.
Along with our members, we are dedicated to improving our built environment and the communities we call home by promoting quality, responsible, sustainable design and advocating on behalf of the profession for the benefit of all Australians.

We have developed a set of Guidelines for EOI and RFT for architectural services following research into best practice EOI and RFT methods in public sector and educational institutions that commission architectural services.

The Australian War Memorial is hell-bent on demolishing Anzac Hall as part of its extravagant $500 million redevelopment plans.
As architects, we are passionate about preserving Australia’s heritage and honouring our national history, nowhere more so than the extraordinary service and sacrifice of the servicemen and women. Destroying such an investment – of effort, culture, and family memories – is a waste and mark of disrespect.
