AIA International Program

The practice of architecture is global in its reach and industry members seek vital information that is pertinent to foreign markets, trade, procurement and practice issues, as well as the cross-cultural aspects of working abroad.

The International Practice Committee strives to promote excellence in international architectural practice; to serve as a resource to members by disseminating information in international markets, practice and design; to develop expertise in international policy and trade issues in order to advise AIA on international practice; to facilitate and enhance the international practices of the membership; and to foster relationships with architects abroad.
