The Architectural Association School of Architecture in London, commonly referred to as the AA, is the oldest independent school of architecture in the UK and one of the most prestigious and competitive in the world. Its wide-ranging programme of exhibitions, lectures, symposia and publications have given it a central position in global discussions and developments within contemporary architectural culture.
The AA’s global programme of Visiting Schools takes more than 1,000 participants on unimaginable journeys encompassing five continents and countless cultures in order to experiment with and discover architecture. AAVS concerns itself with architectural education in its widest possible conception.
