Since 1857, when 13 architects formed what would become The American Institute of Architects, the letters AIA have signified the highest standards in architectural practice. Today, more than 160 years later, with 96,000+ members, the letters AIA still deliver an abiding promise of rigorous education, extensive training, real-world experience, and a commitment to professional excellence recognized by clients, civic leaders, and the public.
AIA Idaho Chapter represents 400 architect members and affiliated industry members.
AIA is powered by the collective voice and actions of 96,000+ members. Together, we’re taking on urgent issues affecting the architecture profession, in numbers that are making a difference. Because when you provide talented, passionate professionals and committed community members access to resources and leadership opportunities, they become a critical voice for change and a powerful force for good.

AIA members are leading the way to carbon neutral, acting as a force multiplier for sustainable, resilient design in communities around the world.
AIA isn’t just supporting this effort, we’re prioritizing it. Our latest efforts include AIA’s Framework for Design Excellence, ten defining principles that guide architects and their clients on the path
to sustainable, resilient, inclusive design; and Blueprint for Better, a multiyear campaign with definitive resources like courses, talking points, message books, research, and reports to transform public awareness and the day-to-day practice of architecture.
Whether you are remodeling your kitchen, creating your dream home, or planning a commercial building, working with an architect can save you time and money, and create a better home or office you’ll enjoy for years to come.
Involving architects early in project development offers tremendous benefits in the form of cost savings, the building’s harmony with the existing community, and improved usability of the space.
Architects are the perfect partners to bring a community's vision of a city to life. Architects have the professional skill and experience to turn an idea into a lasting legacy.
Due to their unique skills and training, architects have the ability to anticipate potential future issues that can affect our cities and take proactive steps to address them.
Architects are known as trusted advisors on buildings, but did you know that all over the US, architects are working with mayors and other civic leaders to take on critical issues facing our cities, like rising water, natural disasters, sustainability, and housing shortages?
