The American Institute of Architects is a community of architects that are committed to making the world aware of the great quality of work, education, local support, and community rebuilding by engaging the public. The American Institute was started in 1857 by a group of architects that were very talented and desired to educate others about architecture. They wanted to make people aware of architects and the great quality of work that they put forth. The American Institute of Architects is now located in Washington, D.C. The number of members has gone from 13 to over 90,000 since their start in 1857.
