Welcome to the Mpumalanga Institute of Architects’ (MPIA) website. The MPIA is a voluntary association and the regional branch of the South African Institute of Architects (SAIA). The primary function of the MPIA is to provide local support to the architectural fraternity within the boundaries of the Mpumalanga Province.  The MPIA further aims to promote good architecture, protect existing structures of aesthetic or historical value and promote architecture as a career.

This website will allow you to interact with the MPIA and its members in various ways.  Whether you are on the lookout for an architect for your project, or whether you are interested in the services that an architect can provide or the process of selection, you will be able to find all the necessary information here.  If you have any questions on a particular aspect, please use the information on the committee page to contact the relevant person.

If you have any queries, comments or suggestions feel free to communicate it to us, we will gladly receive your input to make ours one of the best regional institute websites in the country.
