The Building Designers Association of Australia is the only national association by and for building designers. Representing more than 1500 practitioners from the Building Design industry, ranging from long-term professionals to new students, the BDAA promotes, represents, honours, mentors, and advocates for its membership.
The BDAA attributes its vast growth and membership expansion to the high profile, universally renowned events and programs, such as the Building Designers Association of Australia Professional Development Program, the Chapter Design Awards program, and the BDAA Annual National Conference, the prestigious National Design Awards program, and the auspicious student mentorship program. In truth, though, the BDAA maintains a full network of programs, events and services that renders membership in this association an essential part of being a professional building designer.
The BDAA counts among its membership national and international design award winners, residential building designers, commercial building designers, industrial building designers, authors, magazine columnists, sustainability authorities and experts, design software developers, lecturers, presenters, and others. Our members have been featured on popular television lifestyle and design programs, in major newspapers and design magazines, and on major design websites. Building Designers Association of Australia supports the individual efforts, interests, designs and accomplishments of members and seeks to enhance their success and expertise. We truly feel that, when one member thrives, so thrives the whole of our association.
