The Académie royale d'architecture (Royal Academy of Architecture) was a French learned society founded on December 30, 1671 by Louis XIV, king of France under the impulsion of Jean-Baptiste Colbert. Its first director was the mathematician and engineer François Blondel (1618-1686).

Suppressed in 1793, this Académie was later merged in 1816 into the Académie des beaux-arts, together with the Académie de peinture et de sculpture (Academy of Painting and Sculpture, founded 1648) and the Académie de musique (Academy of Music, founded in 1669).

The Académie des beaux-arts is now one of the five Académies of the Institut de France.
