Architects Registration Council of Nigeria (ARCON)

Appreciation of this informed the bold step taken by Government over 50 years ago to promote the development and growth of Architectural profession in Nigeria; hence the establishment of Architects Registration Council of Nigeria (ARCON) in 1969. The Architects Registration Council of Nigeria (ARCON) is mandated to set Bench Marks and to control the training and practice of Architecture in Nigeria through Architects (Registration etc) Act (1969 no 10) which commenced on 3'd July 1969.

ARCON over the past-36years has lived up to expectation addressing these mandates in collaboration with other stake holders. Today over 4,000 home grown Architects have been registered and are contributing to the Economic Development of Nigeria in various vocations.

However there are still challenges of large shortage of Architects required by the various sectors of the economy, gainful employment, capacity building and full protection of the Local Architects through implementation of Local Content policy and adequate funding of the Council. Notwithstanding these challenges ARCON forges ahead to pursue its mandate and strengthen the profession for National Development.
