This year a single award was given to Robin Flindell from Sheffield University. Robin will be using the £1000 prize to assist in his travels to Teotihuacan, near Mexico City and to The Forbidden City, Beijing, China. Robin will be continuing his research into a Universal Geometry by studying these cultures and their architectural archaeology.

The American Institute of Architects has been a professional society of architects for over 150 years. The AIA, representing more than 83,000 members, is the largest voice of the architectural community in the United States and North America. In 1992, London officially became the ‘first international chapter’ of the AIA, leading the way for the formal recognition of other international chapters in Continental Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

The AIA UK Chapter, based in London, now has over 180 members throughout the country. We have continued a dialogue with the Royal Institute of British Architects and work jointly with its members to promote architecture and the architectural profession. Many of our members are also members of the RIBA and membership in the AIA is available to UK registered architects. Each year, the AIA UK Chapter provides a variety of programs, including lectures, conferences, building visits, and cycle tours. In addition to the Annual Design Awards, the Annual Keynote Lecture, and the Annual Student / Professional Design Charrette, held each autumn, deserve particular note.
