CORA is the only national organization dedicated to all aspects of building better homes for more people. Not restricted to architects or people with design training, CORA is open to any and all who have a passion for creating houses that respond to clients, sites, art and science.

This is a bottom-up, crowd-sourced, open-ended group networking together to share what works, what doesn’t, what sparks an outcry, what deserves revelation. Some have called CORA “Occupy Architecture,” others have found it to be an alternative to the AIA.

CORA is a viral connection – not your mother’s (or father’s) professional organization. It is what anyone makes of it. Nationally formed chapters focus on issues and ideas. They have flourished and started anew since the birth of CORA.


What do you want CORA to be? CORA leads by listening.
