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.

AA Archives: K. Ahari drawings from Hadid, Koolhaas, Zenghelis unit donated.
Kamiar Ahari has kindly donated two of his amazing 2.5m long drawings made in Diploma Unit 9, 1978-79. The unit, ran by Zaha Hadid, Rem Koolhaas and Elia Zenghelis, was ‘concentrated on development of three categories of ‘modern textures’ that could respond to three urbanistic ‘crises’ in the European city’ (Projects Review 1978-79). The meticulously made drawings describe a hotel and a residential building in Bijlmermeer, modernist town in the Netherlands. It comprises of a plan and a beautiful axonometric drawing, mixing exterior and interior, a favoured projection technique in the unit. The design reveals a tension between a modernist repetition and Postmodern details, creating a sort of ‘welfare-state hedonism’.
