The RIBA is a global professional membership body driving excellence in architecture, with more than 47,000 members worldwide. Through our work we champion better buildings and places, stronger communities and a sustainable environment. We provide the standards, training, support and recognition that put our members both in the UK and overseas, at the peak of their profession.
RIBA International offers support for members based or wanting to work overseas, with four global regions - Americas, Europe, Middle East & Africa, and Asia & Australasia - and five established International Chapters serving local communities of architects across the world and hosting regular events and activities.
We promote our members internationally through a strong presence at international conferences and high profile events and through initiatives such as our International Prize and Awards.
We work with international institutes of architects and international architectural organisations - such as the Architects Council of Europe (ACE), the Commonwealth Association of Architects (CAA) and the International Union of Architects (UIA) – to develop collaborative projects, support global networking, promote design excellence in architecture and create greater mobility within the profession.
We also work with other partner organisations, such as the Department of International Trade (DIT), British Expertise International and China-Britain Business Council (CBBC), to arrange activities such as trade visits, networking receptions and one-to-one business matchmaking appointments.
