RIBA Gulf Office

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has recently opened one of its first international offices in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. The RIBA Gulf office makes the Gulf one of the institute's primary international locations. It is a key area of focus for the RIBA to further serve and support its global members in order to deliver better buildings and create a stronger community of architects in the region.

International Chapters

International Chapters enable members to come together as a community with common interests and shared knowledge, to enhance their sense of belonging and benefit from locally developed RIBA related services.
