AIA Continental Europe is one of seven international chapters of The American Institute of Architects. We support architects, students, and building professionals through programs that foster fellowship between practices in Europe, the United States, and beyond.
Our members are US architects, European architects, architectural interns/assistant architects, students of architecture, and members of allied professions.
Through Europe-wide programming and events, we connect our members to one another and to invaluable European and American resources. Through additional joint activities with the six other chapters of the AIA International Region, AIA Europe connects members further to the more than 2,500 professionals belonging to AIA Middle East, AIA Hong Kong, AIA Japan, AIA Shanghai, AIA UK and AIA Canada.
