At NEA, we are more than just architects; we’re dreamers, innovators, and boundary-pushers. We recall the thrill of our first architectural competition, the flood of ideas, and the sense of belonging to a global community. We remember the inspiration that came from being a small-town architect, exchanging ideas with someone from a bustling city halfway across the globe. It made us feel part of something much larger than ourselves.
However, we also recall the challenges, the times we felt lost, or the struggle of navigating complex themes without much guidance. That’s why we decided to do things differently at NEA. We decided to create a platform that transforms the traditional architectural competition into a holistic learning experience.
