Keeping Knowledge About Architecture Availabe.


Exact information about buildings is helpful for many purposes in the fields of maintenance, investment, management and development.

AAiA and her national chapters collect building data and provide the benefits of digital planning for these and other all-day-requirements.
As NPOs, the national chapters ensure data quality and security as well as compliance with local law.

The Music Starts Here

Information about architecture will be permanentely extracted from the archives by our artificial intelligence module. It will learn day and night about building technology and architecture by looking at it and receiving corrections. Within a few years, it will be able to answer almost every question related to our most valuable cultural value architecture.

Our Main Targets

Political decisions will be based on hard facts.
Institutional and public investors will be supported by reliable benchmarks.
Optimized risk management for banks, insurances and their customers.
Fast and reliable research-results for architects, builders and owners.
Overall increased planning and building quality.
Providing the added benefits of available plans and models in the cloud.
Sustainably saving knowledge and cultural value for future generations.

Architecture Archive international Association

is an association within the meaning of Article 60 et seq. of the Swiss Civil Code, foundet in 7/2015, based in Zurich (CH).
AAiA develops sustainable standards and technology for national archives.
AAiA and her national members are bound by statutes,
to dedicate all profits to the cultural value architecture and education.

Why are we an Association?

We are deeply convinced, that information about buildings must remain under control of their owners and architechts.
We respect privacy and -as NPO- will not use any private data to generate commercial profits.
Finally, an Association cannot be taken over by a company.
