RIBA Gulf Chapter
The RIBA Gulf Chapter supports members across the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states including the UAE, Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Sultanate of Oman.
The Chapter has been created to promote design excellence in the delivery of architecture in the Gulf and to add relevance to members working in the region. It is actively engaged with a very significant and diverse number of RIBA and non-RIBA practitioners, to recognise and celebrate the diversity and local culture of members and co-professionals working in the Gulf.
The RIBA Gulf Chapter is planning an exciting set of events for 2021 such as webinars, student workshops, and building presentations to further engage and connect the architectural community in the Gulf.
