We Are The Africa Union of Architects

The Africa Union of Architects was inaugurated in Nigeria on May 23 1981 by his Excellency Alhaji Shehu Shagari, former President of Nigeria , to unite architects from all over the continent regardless of nationality, race, religion or doctrine, and to federate their national organizations.
The benefits being to enable architects in Africa to have a truly Africa collective expression on matters partaining to architecture, built environment and other related activities.
Initially the AUA was made up of delegations from 23 countries. Today, it regroups the key professional organizations in 41 countries, thereby representing over 50000 architects.
In parallel with the development of major intergovernmental institutions with which it maintains close relations, the AUA has become an accomplished non-governmental organization and an incomparable professional network of architects.
The AUA was granted observer status through resolution CM/RES 1116, adopted by the OAU Council of Ministers meeting in its 46th ordinary session in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from 20th-25th July 1987.
