About ARE Studio

Notice: Unfortunately, ARE Studio has been postponed.

Created by the Young Architects Forum of AIA Atlanta, ARE Studio is a mobile study group open to all candidates preparing for NCARB’s ARE 4.0 or 5.0—at zero cost! You don’t have to be an Assoc. AIA member to attend.

Sessions take place every other Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m., offering candidates much flexibility to come and go as needed. ARE Studio provides three powerful tools to keep you on track to finish your: focus, fellowship and accountability.

Candidates must attend to receive online access to study aid materials.  Register to reserve your space and to receive updates.

Tutors Needed: Earn CE Credits

If you’ve passed the ARE 4.0 or 5.0 and would like to share your resources, sign up to tutor here and you could earn free CE credits and event tickets!


The daily pressures of work and your personal life can make it even harder to study. ARE Studio will help you eliminate distractions by providing quiet, productive study spaces.


All ARE Studio participants are working toward one common goal: to pass the exams. By joining us, you are able to ask questions and share knowledge among other candidates.


Yes, the ARE can be intimidating—but you’ve come too far to be discouraged. ARE Studio will help you build a strong support system that may last far beyond obtaining licensure.
