Inform the Public

The Board’s functions include a role to promote discussion of architectural issues in the community. Architecture doesn’t exist in a vacuum so it’s no surprise the Board doesn’t either.

We partner with local councils, state agencies, professional organizations and not for profit groups, local communities and businesses to explore the built environment by hosting events, talks and festivals; preparing advice and publications intended to equip people with the information they need to make the best choices.


The NSW Architects Registration Board works to promote a better understanding of architectural issues in the community by connecting the public, students, architects and others with information about architecture, design and the world around us. We prepare teaching aids and resources for schools, sponsor and support exhibitions and events, and award scholarships.

There are four schools of architecture in NSW. If you're interested in studying architecture, or know someone who is, we've provided links to each of these schools below; 

The University of Sydney 

The University of NSW

The University of Technology Sydney (UTS)

The University of Newcastle

In 2014, the Board sponsored a screening of the short film 'Archiculture' by Arbuckle Industries. The 25-minute film offers a unique glimpse into the world of studio-based, design education through the eyes of a group of students finishing their final design projects. Interviews with leading professionals, historians and educators help create crucial dialogue around the key issues faced by this unique teaching methodology and the built environment these future architects will create.

Archiculture is now available to view online and is a great primer for anyone about to launch in to a degree in architecture, or knows someone who is.
