The Institution Thrust strives to conduct programmes that are aimed to band fellow Architects and Members closer, we aspire to build a larger, yet more closely-knitted architectural fraternity, enabled by the Singapore Institute of Architects through the following:
- SIA60 (SIA 60th Anniversary)
- Annual Dinner
- CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility)
- Membership Engagement Initiative (MEI)
- Recreation (SIA Golf Tournament, Inter-Professional Games (IPG))
- Regional and International Focus: Four-Nation and ARCASIA
- Young Architects League
Moving into the new Council Year, the Institution Thrust will continue to ensure that programmes that have begun to gain traction will continue to be improved, and initiatives that have been conceptualized will see their fruition.
