Established in 1887, Sheffield Society of Architects (SSA) is a branch of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Yorkshire Region.


There is no charge for SSA membership which is open to all RIBA members within the Sheffield, South Yorkshire and North-East Derbyshire areas and extends to employees of Chartered Practices and students/lecturers involved in architecture. Other professionals and interested parties are also welcome to be involved with the Society’s activities.


Led by a volunteer steering group comprising of President, Senior Vice President, Honorary Secretary, Treasurer, Vice Presidents and committee members, SSA exists to support our members, provide a local voice to regional and national RIBA and encourage thinking about how architecture can positively impact on the places where we live out our lives.


In recent years our focus has been on promoting public, professional and student interaction with each other and Sheffield’s architectural realm through the organisation of and involvement in numerous (fun) events and activities, including:


  • The Sheffield Design Awards, working with Sheffield Civic Trust.

  • Design workshops and political lobbying (eg redevelopment of Castlegate & City Centre, Retail Quarter)

  • A monthly series of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) events

  • Sheffield Design Week

  • Love Architecture Festival

  • Fantastical Cities – family-focussed construction events

  • Building Visits

  • Social Events – Pub Quizzes, Soap Box etc

  • Brutalist Playground by Turner Prize winner Assemble with Simon Terrill
