About us

Unique, dynamic, independent and international, the Architectural Association School of Architecture was originally set up in 1847 as a public forum and learned society, in/famously founded by 'a pack of troublesome students'. The AA is much more than the UK's oldest school of architecture; the school is the nexus of a global conglomeration of contemporary architectural culture, as well as its pasts. The AA’s incarnations include:
• a professional association;
• a vibrant membership organisation comprising more than 3000 members;
• a registered charity;
• AA Publications, publisher of books and journals;
• AA Bookshop, one of London’s leading architectural booksellers;
• a high-profile public events programme, including a wealth of exhibitions, lectures, symposia, seminars, conversations, research clusters and visits; and
• a renowned architectural school based in London and worldwide.

One of the AA’s most notable Alumni and former tutors Will Alsop has sadly passed away aged 70.

Will Alsop graduated from the AA in 1973 and taught from 1975 to 1989 with David Greene, John Lyall and artist Bruce McLean amongst others. He worked with Cedric Price for four years and set up practice with John Lyall, who has said: “Will was exceptionally talented and always had a unique view of architecture”. Will met his wife Sheila at the AA in 1974 when she was AA General Studies Coordinator. Amongst his former students at the AA are Amanda Levete, Steve Christer of Studio Granda and current AA Interim Director Samantha Hardingham.
