The American Institute of Architects (AIA) has been the leading professional membership association for licensed architects, emerging professionals, and allied partners since 1857. The AIA Corpus Christi chapter was incorporated in 1960 as a way to bring local architects together to continue advancement and development in the profession. Representing approximately 80,000 members nationally, 6,000 members statewide, and 100 members locally; this three-tiered organization is the largest voice of the architectural community.
AIA Corpus Christi unites the community of design professionals who live and work in the Texas Coastal Bend by connecting directly with architects, associates, and professionals in the design and build industries. Acting as a resource to the general public, AIA Corpus Christi utilizes its vast local and national opportunities to educate, promote and encourage ongoing support and appreciation of innovative and historic architecture.
