The Bronx Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), represents Architects who practice and/or live within Bronx County of New York City. The Chapter was founded in 1945 to promote the profession, the objectives of the American Institute of Architects, and architecture within the Borough of the Bronx.
The American Institute of Architects was founded in New York City in 1857 and today has over Ninety Thousand members nationwide with its current administrative offices located in Washington, D.C. The Bronx Chapter is also a Member of AIA New York State, which has eight thousand members. The State organization was formed in 1931 from the then practicing group of licensed architects: The State of New York Council of Registered Architects. The AIA New York State organization is comprised of thirteen local chapters, including one in each of the five boroughs.
The Bronx Chapter members are committed to represent the professional interests of Architects in relation to allied businesses and the public concerning the planning, design, architecture, and construction issues of the borough. The Chapter interacts with Bronx elected officials, its educational institutions, and local non-profit organizations to enhance Bronx County while simultaneously supporting the highest level of professional conduct.
The AIA Bronx, due to its size, offers its members the ability to participate together on a very personal basis. The chapter develops its agenda from its members to advocate with government agencies, elected officials and community leaders for the "built environment". The chapter meets at the convenience of its members. Meetings take place on different months during the day and other times at night – allowing members flexibility to attend.
AIA Bronx publicizes and celebrates design by joining AIA Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island for an annual awards program.

Mourning with the families of the latest senseless murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and many more, the Bronx AIA commemorated and celebrated Juneteenth, the date in which the last enslaved persons were freed after emancipation. The Bronx AIA membership seeks to go beyond the platitudes of standing in solidarity in recognizing that “Black Lives Matter” and the core values of the racial equality. We live and practice architecture in one of our nation’s poorest, most disadvantaged and diverse communities, therefore we see it as our special responsibility to expand our mission and pledge as Bronx AIA and community members:
This is a moment of great opportunity for growth, inclusion and promise for the Bronx AIA, the profession and the nation.
