Northern Territory CHAPTER

The Institute’s NT Chapter promotes quality, responsible and sustainable design in the Northern Territory. We aim to encourage and uphold professional excellence through our series of student and professional member events and programs for the benefit of the Territory’s built environment and communities.

The Chapter also holds the annual Northern Territory Architecture Awards to promote local architects and architecture itself within the Territory, across Australia and internationally.

The NT Chapter recognises the Larrakia people as the traditional land owners of Darwin. We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
