NAW is Filipino Architects and students amplifying ideals and aspirations for the Philippines by empowering architects as partners of other built environment with professionals to sustainable community building.

β€œThe success is to the enthusiasm, voluntarism, collaboration, and active participation of architecture students. The success is attributed to your potentials as future architects.” says Ar. Corpuz.
