“Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness.”
Frank Gehry

About AIA|DC


AIA|DC advances the value of architecture for our members, our profession, and our community.


Founded in 1887, the Washington Chapter of the American Institute of Architects serves the Nation's Capital, functioning as both the "local" and "state" component of the AIA for the District of Columbia. The Chapter was intimately involved in the design and planning of Washington, and continues to play an active role in city development today.


The Chapter is located in the District Architecture Center (DAC) at 421 7th Street, NW. DAC convenient to Gallery Place-Chinatown (Red Line) and Archives-Navy Memorial Penn Quarter (Yellow/Green Line) Metro Stations.
