As a resource for its members in service to society, AIA Chicago promotes positive change through the power of design.



The American Institute of Architects (AIA), with over 95,000 members in 200+ chapters around the world, inspires and empowers architects to improve society and transform the world. Through core values that center on being impactful, transformative, visionary, inclusive, and innovative, the AIA drives positive change through the power of design and focused activism. The AIA is a three-tiered organization operating at the national, state, and local levels. AIA Chicago is a local chapter/component of the AIA and is independently chartered and incorporated. The national organization is headquartered in Washington, DC and the statewide component, AIA Illinois, is based in Springfield.



AIA Chicago is the largest chapter of licensed architects, emerging professionals, and allied individuals within AIA Illinois and is the second largest local AIA chapter in the country.
