'What architects do' with the AIA


Visit the headquarters of the Australian Institute of Architects at 41X for their "What architects do", a series of presentations unpacking how architects work and the benefits of specialised areas of the architectural process.

41X is a lean twenty-two-storey tower occupying a small footprint (285-square-metre office floor plate) on the corner of Exhibition Street and Flinders Lane. The building is a hub for built environment engagement, Institute members and staff, with five of its floors occupied by the Institute’s offices, including the Victorian Chapter and the National executive team.

What's On

The Australian Institute of Architects will be opening its doors to the public for a day of presentations about the services architects provide to their clients and the community. This will be a great opportunity to learn about what is included when an architect is engaged to provide "full services" and what considerations architects make in areas that affect both the natural and the built environment, including:
- Sustainable architecture
- Enabling architecture for universally accessible requirements
- Heritage conservation and adaptive reuse
