Founded in 1894, AIA Seattle is a not-for-profit professional association of architects, allied professionals, and laypeople. AIA Seattle is committed to excellence in architecture and service to the public. AIA Seattle membership is open to anyone with a professional or personal interest in architectural practice, and in the creation or appreciation of the built environment. AIA Seattle operates as an IRS-designated 501(c)(6) corporation.

AIA Seattle is the eighth largest urban component of the American Institute of Architects, with members throughout the Puget Sound area.  AIA Seattle is one of six components affiliated with AIA Washington, and the AIA Northwest & Pacific Region, both based in Olympia.

In 2011, AIA Seattle founded Design in Public to promote more public dialog about the role and impact of design on urban life.
