Bay Area Young Architects (BAYA)
BAYA connects designers, students and newly licensed architects for networking, volunteer opportunities and social events. With over 800 members, BAYA is the most active AIA committee for young architects nationwide. Our goal is to involve young architects from graduation to licensure with the architectural community. We have monthly meetings to announce our activities, other architecture related events, volunteer opportunities and to discuss topics relevant to the architecture profession.
Each month a local architecture firm hosts and gives a brief presentation of their work. This is an opportunity for young architects to learn about the different practices in the city, as well as a chance for the hosting firm to present it self and attract new talent. We also organize monthly mixers around the city and a number of special events throughout the year.
BAYA meetings are free to attend for everyone in the architecture profession. Our membership is open to all non-licensed professionals and architects licensed for less than 10 years in the Bay Area whether or not a member of a local AIA chapter.
Firm Visits: 2nd Thursday of the month, 6:30 - 8:30 pm (location varies; mixer following)
Mixers: 4th Thursday of the month, 6:30 - 8:30 pm, (location varies)
If you are interested in hosting a future BAYA event, please contact Wesley Wong (Co-Chair) at email@example.com.

Stanley Saitowitz | Natoma Architects's approach focuses on each building beginning with the site, and the particular desires to transform it. Buildings are earth, made of matter, and a continuation of the geological processes that produced their sites, part of natural evolution. A building marks and amplifies its unique spot on the globe.
Both the buildings in landscapes and the work in cities demonstrates this marking of time and place.
