“Our mission is to revolutionize the built environment by equipping people and companies with the skills to design and build better.”
Who we are
We are a professional online provider of continuing education approved by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) for the fields of architecture, engineering, real estate and construction. We are one of the first online platforms to teach architecture, and as such, we have formed a global community of professionals and companies looking to collaborate, learn, and develop essential skills and knowledge around the built environment.
What we do
Through our e-learning platform, we deliver professional education for design, architecture, and real estate professionals and enthusiasts. As pioneers in the field of online education, we have also empowered our international community of practitioners and enthusiasts to apply their skills on solving real-world problems and designing high-impact projects through the various global challenges that we have run and the subsequent courses that accompanied them.
