American Institute of Architects
The American Institute of Architects (AIA) is the national organization representing members of the architectural profession. With membership of more than 80,000 and nearly 400 state and local chapters nationwide, the AIA works to achieve a better, more sustainably built environment and unites the profession behind policies aimed at creating a higher quality of life. AIA's Center for Communities by Design is concerned with architects' contributions to safe, attractive, economically viable, and environmentally sustainable communities. The AIA works closely with the Mayor's Institute on City Design to improve the urban landscape. Our Regional and Urban Design Committee and Regional/Urban Design Assistance Teams aim to improve the quality of communities by promoting excellence in design. AIA initiatives aim to continuously improve the condition of both the built and natural environments.
