Philadelphia Emerging Architects

What is PEA?
PEA stands for Philadelphia Emerging Architects.
(Pronounced: Pee-yA) ; pee-yuh; /pēə/

What does PEA mean for me?
If you are an Associate AIA Member / AIA Young Architect Forum Member, you will still be both of those things! PEA simply means that you have a new committee structure that aims to bring you the best and most relevant programs and events throughout the year for emerging architecture professionals in Philadelphia. 

Together we INSPIRE, CONNECT, GROW, CREATE, and LEAD.
