WELCOME TO THE FUTURE OF AWARDS IN ARCHITECTURE

THE HISTORY OF IIA NATIONAL AWARDS

The Indian Institute of Architects is a century old organization, this being its Centenary year. It is the only premier Institution having a fraternity of 20000 plus Architects in India. The Institute's objectives are to promote the professional practice and upgrade the Architectural education in India, by conducting seminars, conferences, workshops and various competitions, via its well spread network of state level chapters and city level centres covering pan India.

Annual features of the Institute are The National Convention, Young Architects Festival, Institute's Premier League Cricket match tournament and IIA National Awards for Excellence in Architecture.

The IIA NATIONAL AWARDS was initiated in the year 1989. This is the only National Level Award presented to the deserving Architects by its own fraternity members' organization. The Awards are given in various categories.

After the grand success of IIA Awards conducted last year in co-ordination with Calicut Centre, this year's Awards will continue to be presented in the upgraded format.

The IIA NATIONAL AWARDS for the year 2016 will be hosted by IIA TAMILNADU CHAPTER.
