Glasgow Institute of Architects

About

The GIA has its origins in the Glasgow Architectural Society. In 1868 the Institute was incorporated with architect-only members. Their objectives remain the same today:

  • the advancement of the Art and Science of Architecture
  • the consideration and discussion of subjects connected with the profession -t he elevation of the attainments and protection of the interests of Glasgow Architects

Today the GIA is the largest of the six Chapters of RIAS. The Institute is run by a Council with Committees covering Architecture People and Places, Communications, Education, Practice/CPD and Conservation-Sustainability. The Institute administers Student and Design Awards recognising excellence in architecture.
