The AAA Thanks You For Your Support Over 2015

The Australian Architecture Association’s purpose is to educate and promote greater understanding of architecture and design. This would not be possible without the support and encouragement of both the design community and enthusiasts of all things designed.

We would like to thank the architects and their clients who so kindly opened their doors for our tour attendees over 2015. Learning about the buildings directly from architects and experiencing the spaces has been both educational and inspirational.

Thank you also to the people who have attended our tours over the year. The enthusiasm and curiosity expressed by tour participants is the motivation that drives our passionate volunteers and governing committee.
