The Birmingham Architectural Association
Founded in 1874, represents architects, built environment professionals and creatives in the local area. The BAA is the local branch of RIBA, ran by a hardworking volunteer committee, composed of people from practices and universities across the city.
Our aim is to promote, support and share knowledge through and for our community. Committee members champion their interests and issues through workshops, events, publications and their contribution to local and national design boards.
We hold events in unique venues, with fantastic local, independent caterers and have collaborated with some of the most influential local and international architects, designers and industry leaders.
The Focus Groups is our way of getting passionate volunteers together. Each Focus Group is run by an amazing leader and involves number of Committee Members! Check out the team on the Committee page.
The BAA offers events for everyone; ranging from parties of 400 people, workshops and 'Table Talks' led by renowned architects in their own designs, to more intimate architectural walking tours of 10-20 people.
Lastly, thanks to our sponsors, who keep our doors open to run the many events that we put on over the year!
