NOMAS Spotlight

VANOMA kicked off its NOMAS Spotlight on December 16, 2021 to wrap up 2021 and put the focus on the next generation. The NOMAS spotlight gives students from each architecture program in the Commonwealth of Virginia a chance to display their work. With the virtual platform, it allowed the the students to exchange in meaningful critique from architects across the country.

The NOMAS Spotlight was created to allow students a chance to showcase their talents and network with architects and potential employers from across the Commonwealth of Virginia.
