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.
