Joint Architectural Intelligence Associates


JAIA Development Platform

      The collective thinking of JAIA architects draws upon experience from their own career, studies and experiments for JAIA’s unique Joint Architectural Intelligence. Joint Architectural Intelligence recognise individual projects, research works and creative approaches as valuable intellectual assets to be reused for either repetitive or hybrid approach. Having collated highly professional intelligence over the last 20 years of JAIA members expert experiences, JAIA persist to be a unique architectural practice crossing over the boundaries. In architectural projects, JAIA provides a platform in which developers, funders, contractors and other consultants will operate together like an integrated project team to deliver a greater quality of architecture with a viable financial structure to the end users. The intelligence that JAIA collates gets fed into this platform and gives greater potential to all our partners.
