About us

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) is a global professional membership body driving excellence in architecture. We serve our members and society in order to deliver better buildings and places, stronger communities and a sustainable environment.

We work to ensure we are nurturing and creating an inclusive and diverse profession, driving forward the very highest professional standards within our membership, and working with Government to shape key policy areas. We also celebrate excellence in architecture through extensive cultural programming, including world class exhibitions and talks, which sit alongside our prestigious annual UK and International Awards programmes.  Find out more, visit
