  • History

    The Ceylon Institute of Architects (CIA) was established in 1956 by a small group of foreign qualified Architects following several meetings to work out a constitution. This original group also had membership of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).The Inaugural meeting of the institute was held on 11th September 1957 at the Tea Propaganda Board on Prince Street in the Colombo Fort with the - participation of twelve Architects.


    Having adopted a constitution, which followed that of the British Institute of Architects, the intention of the CIA was to obtain the status of an allied society of the RIBA. They achieved this in 1960, by which time the membership of The Ceylon Institute of Architects had risen to 30. The CIA received the encouragement of the then President of the RIBA, Sir Basil Spence and the considerable assistance of C.D.Spragg the then Secretary of the RIBA. In recognition of this assistance Mr. Spragg was later elected by the CIA as its first Honorary Fellow. Due to the hard work of these founder members of the Institute, a School of Architecture attached to the Institute of Practical Technology, Katubedda was established in 1961.


    In 1976, through a private member's motion by the then Minister of Housing and Construction, the Hon. Pieter Keuneman, the Ceylon Institute of Architects was incorporated as the Sri Lanka Institute of Architects (SLIA) by an Act of Parliament, called the Sri Lanka Institute of Architects Law No.1 of 1976.
