The New Zealand Institute of Architects represents more than 90 per cent of all registered architects in New Zealand. Through our members we are committed to promoting and celebrating outstanding architecture and to creating greater awareness of the values and benefits well designed buildings and public spaces can bring to our cities and towns.

The NZIA has around 3000 members. Approximately 50 per cent are registered architects working in New Zealand, with the balance of membership made up of New Zealand architects working overseas, architectural graduates, architecture students, teachers of architecture and retired architects.
The NZIA was first established in 1905. In 1963, it was reformed under The Architects Act, with functions split between the NZIA, the professional organisation for architects, and what is now known as the New Zealand Registered Architects Board (NZRAB), which undertakes regulatory functions.
