AIA (American Institute of Architects)


AIA ME was established to extend the services of the AIA to its members practicing in the MENA region, and uphold a high standard of design, education, and professional practice among its members. Equally as important, AIA ME will help foster stronger ties between AIA, regional architects, and governments in the MENA region.  It will provide a conduit for communication and support from AIA, American associates, and fellow overseas members, as well as offer a means for local recognition of credentials and professional experience.

The Chapter will organize US-trained architects and other interested design professionals who are active in the Middle East, and who have professional ties to the United States. The Chapter seeks to foster an understanding of the differences in professional practices between the US and the Middle East; promote US training and design approaches; facilitate international recognition of US professional architectural credentials; and foster communications between AIA and its members who work and reside in the Middle East.
