Nearly one year ago today, the AIBC’s 100th Annual Meeting took place. Following this, the Centenary Reception was held where attendees had the opportunity to hear from a number of inspiring speakers, including the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, the Honourable Janet Austin, OBC. These two events would mark the beginning of the Institute’s centenary year, commemorating 100 years of regulation.
Over the past year, the AIBC has continued to recognize this important milestone in many ways – through unveiling decades on our AIBC 100 timeline to sharing fast facts in our monthly newsletter. We officially unveiled all twelve time periods in our last edition, from the path to regulation all the way to 2020 and beyond. Looking back at the timeline, it is clear that there have been many advancements in the regulation of the profession, as well as for the architectural community as a whole: architecture in B.C. has grown from a small group of individuals into a truly global profession.
In case you missed it, we invite you to view the full AIBC 100 timeline here. Below are just a few visual highlights from several sections:
While the Institute’s centenary has come to a close, the AIBC 100 webpage will still be live for readers to re-visit and view the timeline. We would like to thank everyone who explored the province’s rich architectural history with us, as well as the AIBC’s past, present, and future. We hope that you learned something new about the regulation of the profession, and how it has transformed over the past 100 years.
We look forward to the next 100 years!
