As the official publication of the BIA, Caribbean Architecture Design (CAD) Magazine is a key source for information on the industry, projects, and ideas of architects and design professionals within Barbados and the Caribbean.

The Magazine

CAD gives insight from our perspective on accessibility and interactions with professionals; the creation of public awareness in matters of the built and natural environment, and more. We exist to share the stories of and from the people who create the places we live, work, learn and play as expressions of our art and our purpose to significantly influence and contribute to the development of community and country.

The BIA Story

The Barbados Institute of Architects (BIA) is the local body for architecture and the architectural profession. The institute was established on the 10th April 1968 as the "Barbados Society of Architects" and was later renamed to its current title on the 30th May 1979. 

Now, as we forge ahead into the digital future, we continue the conversation by creating this publication to provide guidance and education to the public on the matters of the industry. Placing the thoughts and words of the leaders in our field directly into the readers hands offers the invaluable knowledge needed to inspire good design and public satisfaction - today and beyond.
