The Trinidad and Tobago Institute of Architects (TTIA) which evolved from the Trinidad and Tobago Society of Architects (TTSA), was formed 64 years ago on December 20th 1954. The Society became an Institute in 1981 and currently boasts a membership of over one hundred Full, Honorary, Graduate, Student and Overseas members. The Architecture Profession Act was lobbied for by members of the TTIA to ensure that the public was protected by ensuring that those delivering architectural services had the qualifications and experience to do so. The Act became legislation in 1992 allowing for the formation of the Board of Architecture of Trinidad and Tobago and the registration of Architects and the regulation of the practice of Architecture in Trinidad and Tobago. To date, 26 years later, 149 Architects have been added to the register.
