UPA-BUA Union Professionnelle d'Architectes
Beroepsunie Van Architecten


Why join the UPA-BUA ?

Becoming a member of a professional union is first of all believing in one's profession and future by supporting the actions of colleagues who are active at different levels to inform architects, defend them and promote their profession and architecture. It is also not to remain isolated and be able to exchange or debate professional issues and to be kept informed, through publications, presentations and trips or visits.

By being UPA-BUA member you are automatically affiliated to the UWA (Walloon Union of Architects), the AriB (Architects' in Brussels), and the BVA (Beroepsvereniging van Architecten).

By affiliating you will receive our free publication of the Quarterly Bulletin and one sample of the Unit Prices Schedule (of a value of 100 €) during first year of edition, and benefit from free or discounted travels, seminars and conferences.

Who can join UPA-BUA ?

To be an effective member, one must be in possession of a diploma allowing to practice the profession of architect in Belgium and practice the profession of architect in an honorable manner, whatever the form of practice.

Please note!

Membership is not compulsory to buy our publications via the site. You only need to create an account online.
