The AIA Baltimore / Baltimore Architecture Foundation offices are temporarily closed. Visit our events page for upcoming virtual programming.



The American Institute of Architects is a visionary organization providing advocacy, leadership, and resources for architects to design a better world.

Founded in 1871, the Baltimore Chapter of The American Institute of Architects is one of the oldest AIA chapters in the country.

AIA Baltimore serves as the voice of the architecture profession in the Baltimore metropolitan area. The chapter consists of nearly 1,300 architects, emerging professionals, and allied industrial members united to demonstrate the value of architecture and design.

As a professional organization, the most important service the AIA provides is unifying the efforts of individuals and firms to improve our profession and the built environment. We do this at local, state and national levels through proactive legislation and public awareness campaigns. The AIA also provides timely and relevant continuing education to give the AIA Architect a competitive advantage in the market place. Finally, the AIA offers individuals the opportunity to network with other architects, elected officials, community leaders and allied professionals.

Our Mission

By advancing our shared values of Community, Knowledge and Advocacy, AIA Baltimore strives to make the Baltimore region a better place to live, work and play.
