The RIBA Gulf Chapter has been introduced to promote design excellence in the delivery of architecture in the Gulf and to add relevance to members working in the region. The Chapter is actively engaged with a very significant and diverse number of RIBA architects and non-RIBA practitioners working in the Gulf. This wide focus has resulted in a variety of thought-provoking events and discussion forums, as well as networking opportunities, all with the aim of raising the profile of the profession regionally.
The Chapter has been formally registered, under the patronage of the Ruler of Sharjah, as a company branch in the UAE based at the American University of Sharjah (AUS).
The AUS is recognised as a centre of excellence for education that will complement the Chapter's aims and objectives, essentially to support members in their professional development, promote good design and encourage schools and students of architecture in the region.
An official trade licence has been issued to enable the Chapter to introduce relevant programmes of activity across the GCC States for both members and co-professionals living and working in the region.
