Founded in 1857, the AIA New York Chapter is the oldest and largest chapter of the American Institute of Architects. The Chapter's members include almost 5,000 practicing architects, allied professionals, students, and public members interested in architecture and design. The AIA New York Chapter is dedicated to three goals: design excellence, public outreach, and professional development.
To fulfill its mission, the Chapter sponsors an array of initiatives, programs and exhibitions that explore topics interesting to the architectural profession, including housing, planning, historic preservation, and urban design. See this page to learn more about its storefront Center for Architecture, New York City’s premier hub for those interested in the built environment.
The Chapter coordinates the activities of more than 24 committees and works with its charitable affiliate, the Center for Architecture Foundation, to provide scholarship and educational opportunities for students and the general public. Each year, the AIA New York Chapter also hosts a Design Awards Program to recognize design excellence in three categories—architecture, interior architecture and projects. In addition, the Chapter publishes a magazine, Oculus, and an electronic newsletter, eOCULUS.
