The ACA was founded in 1973 by former presidents of the RIBA.

It has stood firm for quality in architecture and reliability of service in private practice ever since and was created at a time when there was no organisation in existence, dedicated specifically to the interests of private practitioners.
The original dedication still holds true and the maintenance of a collective voice on important and topical matters related to the role and standing of consultant architects remains the single most important benefit offered to ACA members today.
The ACA believes that it is vitally important that those who choose to practise architecture have an effective voice to represent their interests whether through the press, parliament or in the eyes of the public.
If you are an architect interested in having an effective voice and prompt representation on issues that affect you and your practice, ACA is uniquely positioned to work on your behalf.
