Czechia: Society of Czech Architects

The Society of Czech Architects serves as a cultural platform for Czech architects, ensuring association activities with the aim of promoting Czech architects to both the professional and general public, both in the Czech Republic and abroad. The year of establishment is dating back to 1921, continuing the legacy of the architects’ societies from the First Republic. In 1989, it transformed from the Union of Architects, and between 1990 and 1993, it contributed to the establishment of the professional organization of the Czech Chamber of Architects. In 1948, it became a founding member of the International Union of Architects (UIA), with the membership of the Czech Republic being renewed by the new leadership of the Society in 2017, thus once again ensuring the protection and rights of Czech architects worldwide. Additionally, the Society of Czech Architects is a member of the Visegrad 4 Architectural Partnership.
