// ABOUT US
The Pretoria Institute for
Architecture (PIA) is a Voluntary
Association recognised by the
South African Council for the
Architectural Profession (SACAP),
and is a ‘Regional Institute’ of the
South African Institute of Architects.
Well known architects including Norman Eaton, Tobie Louw, Adriaan Louw, Ivan Sive, Ian Alexander, Peter Kuhn and Thomas Honiball (to name only a few)served as architects, in various capacities in Pretoria through the Pretoria Architectural Society (PAS).
The Transvaal Provincial Institute of Architects, having existed for the better part of a century, ceased to exist in the early 1990’s and the South African Institute of Architects was established.
The Pretoria Architectural Society became the new Pretoria Institute of Architects. However, the constitution and subsequently the name changed to acknowledge and provide for other forms of membership, such as Technologists, Artists, Historians and Friends. Thus the name changed to Pretoria Institute for Architecture.
With a current membership of more than 600 architectural professionals across all categories of registration, in Johannesburg and Pretoria and the North West, the PIA is well placed within the Gauteng region to serve the professional needs of its members.
