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.
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.
