The WA Chapter represents the interest of the Institute and all of its members in Western Australia. Working in accordance with the Institute’s strategic plan, our committees implement programs to support our members and respond to current issues and opportunities for the profession.
We also focus on advocacy, raising the bar of excellence in architecture and the built environment more broadly in WA while actively engaging with the broader community, industry partners, universities, and state and local government.
The WA Chapter recognises the Noongar people as the traditional land owners of Nedlands. We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
The Australian Institute of Architects Awards program offers an opportunity for public and peer recognition of the innovative work of our WA architects.
We’ve received 79 entries across the 11 categories.
From the 79 entries there are 7 projects that will be considered for the Sustainable Award, 8 for the Colorbond Award for Steel Architecture and 31 for the WA Lighting Award sponsored by Mondoluce.
The Chapter hosts continuing professional development (CPD) events that address many aspects of architectural practice.
We also conduct activities including site tours for emerging architects as well as forums addressing consumer and industry trends.
Partner your business with the peak body for architecture and design!
Partnership with the Institute provides your business with a range of different engagement and networking opportunities, allowing you to connect with key decision-makers from architectural firms throughout WA and Australia.
The WA Chapter of the Australian Institute of Architects in collaboration with the WA branch of the Association of Consulting Architects have produced a short film aimed to outline the key points of the
State Government’s new SPP7.3 Draft Medium Density Code. We have been working with the DesignWA team at the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage at various levels of stakeholder engagement and testing of the new code.
This has been a great opportunity for architects to be at the centre of the conversation about the future of our cities and communities.
We are disappointed that a long term vision and sense of urgency for the two biggest issues affecting the nation’s built environment – climate change and the housing-affordability crisis – is not shared by all parties.
We are calling for housing to be recognised as a basic human right, which would be supported by a generational plan for affordable and social housing.
