The WMAIA promotes excellence in architecture through professional development, community outreach, and the celebration of architecture in our region.

We want to engage the public in an ongoing, meaningful dialogue about architecture and the built environment: how does it affect you, your family, your workplace, and the world?

Many of our programs and events – such as our film series – are free and open to the public. The public is also welcome to attend our continuing education programs for a fee; check out our films, programs and other events at the links in our menu above.

We invite the community to download and read our quarterly newsletter, to sign up for our free monthly e-newsletter, or to join the WMAIA.
