Student Organised Network for Architecture
Who we Are
SONA (Student Organised Network for Architecture) is the national student-membership body of the Australian Institute of Architects. Student members have access to a huge range of support networks and forums, information, resources, events, prizes and competitions.
There are SONA networks active in all states and territories that are supported by the SONA executive team.
In 2020 with the theme of renew, SONA will be actively engaged in addressing issues of sustainability, resilience and strength in both the environment and the community that works and learns within it.
What we stand for
SONA aims to advance the interests of architecture students, their education and the profession as a whole through the promotion of student work and thinking.
SONA members are the new wave of Australian design talent, and we’re set to support tomorrow’s architects with the resources to augment their learning and prepare them for their future careers. By becoming a student member of the Australian Institute of Architects you will gain a better understanding on how the profession works and get the same access to valuable tools and information as the country’s leading firms and practices.
SONA aims to foster a culture of community, leadership and collaboration between students for the advancement of architecture. This is achieved by bringing together students from across the Australia to participate in national and local events, to advocate for students and to offer opportunities for professional development.
