iDEA’s design agenda is to develop an architecture that emerges from the critical thinking of the present architectural practice. iDEA questions the established pattern and seeks to develop a synthesis of a cohesive architectural organization that could be engineered into endurable future. This approach positions iDEA’s practice within the domain of architectural discipline while embracing the rich heterogeneity and flux of social, cultural, material, and ecological substrates.
Our professional design service will award our clients’ investment with innovative, intelligent, and interdisciplinary architectural design proposals.
Innovation stays at the heart of our service philosophy. We appreciate the knowledge economy and believe in the value of innovation globally. Our innovation will be rooted in the project context and constraints with respect to clients’ essential interests. Our design innovation is surprisingly satisfactory with unexpected yet fitful new possibilities beyond the design solutions for problems.
Intelligence is the engine to power our design process. We believe that every project has its own uniqueness. The customized design approach will be engineered to become design strategies and intelligence, which guarantee the excellence of our design products.
Interdisciplinary maps out our belief in seeking design concepts. We encourage a mix of expertise in the very early design stage, including but not limited to engineers, programmers, suppliers, contractors, because we never thought the architectural design is about its ontological investigation and creation. It is our vision that architectural creativity will likely emerge through interdisciplinary thinking while our knowledge is increasingly distributed, digitized, specialized, and connected.
