2016-2020 Strategic Plan

Advancing Member Experience and Value


It is the year 2030, and the American Institute of Architects is harnessing the power of architecture to transform society. The role of architects has never been greater. The United Nations predicts that by 2050, the number of people living in cities will have doubled from 2015 rates, with 96 percent of that growth in emerging markets. The AIA and its members have embraced these dramatic changes and are leaders in demonstrating how the built environment is fundamental to a healthy society, and in showcasing how the thoughtful and responsible practice of architecture is an essential ingredient in addressing the inherent opportunities, challenges, and inequities in our communities.
