We seek to provide mentorship and info about the field of architecture, including programming on important issues within architecture.

Through mentorship & informational events, our hope is that anyone can seek & receive info about architecture. With increased exposure & accessible information within architecture, representation and the profession of architecture can be improved. We hope to build a strong supportive community that participates in events such as the NOMAS Student Design Competition at the National conference, and the Seattle Design Festival – building our portfolios, skills, and teamwork through these programs, while representing the University of Washington.

NOMAS UW looks forward to programming each year including workshops and information sessions, as well as firm tours and lecture panels featuring minority architects. Programming will also often involve strategic partnerships, including other student groups, local firms, and our professional chapter, NOMA NW.

NOMAS – Making & Taking Up Space: Dismantling the Model Minority Myth seeks to commemorate AAPI month in May by organizing a series of weekly events focused on architecture and other forms of creative work. The series will create a month-long immersive experience that will not only prepare CBE students for their future careers but will celebrate the breadth of AAPI experiences in the professional design industry.
