The Aidea History

AIDEA's preeminent position as one of the Philippines' most recognized and highly ranked architectural practices in the world today is remarkable when one considers the breadth and depth of what it has accomplished in the last 20 years.

AIDEA began as a local office for a British architectural firm in 1995. Like all good beginnings that started out small and lean, AIDEA soon after started spreading its wings, becoming a major architectural force in the country and setting its sights on being recognized both locally and globally on its own.

In 2005, AIDEA became the country's foremost user of new platforms in technology, switching from 2D to 3D Building Information Modeling (BIM) and becoming one of the prime users of BIM in the world. It was also the same year that it introduced Environmental Graphics in the Philippine design industry, offering fully integrated design services to its clients.

AIDEA became an all-Filipino design firm in 2003. With the goal of establishing itself as the leader in the Philippine design industry and with its sights to breaking into the global design stage, AIDEA continued to spearhead new paradigms in integrated and collaborative designs, innovating and translating visions of livable and workable spaces into dynamic human experiences.

Twenty years after its inception, and with a complement of 200 design professionals, it is now at the forefront of the country's new design movement. AIDEA is now one of the country's largest design practices as recognized by BCI Asia in 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2015. It has also ranked No. 62 in the Building Design (BD) World Architecture 2015 Top 100 Architects.

From its humble beginnings to the present, AIDEA continues to evolve and adapt to the never-ending changes in the global environment. Exploring new frontiers in design and technology and setting new standards for the future.
