South African Institute of Architects (SAIA)

The South African Institute of Architects is a voluntary association and is the natural successor to the Institute of South African Architects which was originally established in 1927 and renamed the South African Institute of Architects in 1996. 

SAIA incorporates the nine existing regional institutes: Border-Kei [Eastern Cape], CIfA Western Cape, Eastern Cape, Free State, GIfA Gauteng, KZNIA KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo, Mpumalanga and PIA Gauteng. 

The mission of the Institute is to act as the collective voice serving the interests of its members in pursuit of excellence and responsible design. It aims to uphold the dignity of the architectural profession and contribute meaningfully to the enhancement of society and the environment.
