Why Study at Architectural association school of architecture?
The Architectural Association School of Architecture in London, commonly referred to as the AA, is considered to be the oldest independent school of architecture in the UK and one of the most prestigious and competitive in the world as well. It was established in 1847 as a student-centred collective and it aspired to challenge the established ways in which architecture was taught, theorised, and argued at the time and it urged its members to reconsider the cultural responsibilities and commonplace social of the profession at large which are aspirations that remain at the heart of the school today.
The AA grew from a night school to a self-governed educational institution with a global reputation. It became the first full-time, professional day school for architectural study in the country at the beginning of the 20th century, and it also provided the very first specialised diplomas of its kind in Europe. In 1917, the school moved to Bedford Square where it remains to this day, surrounded by some of the most leading research institutions in the world.
