ARB was established by Parliament in 1997 to regulate the architects’ profession in the UK. We are an independent, public interest body and our work in regulating architects ensures that good standards within the profession are consistently maintained for the benefit of the public and architects alike.
The Royal Institute of British Architects champions better buildings, communities and the environment through architecture and our members.
We provide the standards, training, support and recognition that put our members – in the UK and overseas – at the peak of their profession.
