Like many global cities, London is defined by its unchanging institutions and familiar, iconic imagery. The 2015 AA Summer School will challenge the ordinary and ask participants to design and re-describe London as a city of eccentricities made up of off-centre, unusual, and even irreverent originals. This three-week studio will catapult London into a future released from the tyranny of urban predictability.
The course is aimed at people who want to change their architectural lives and experience first-hand the AA School’s famed unit system of teaching and learning architecture, driven by intensive agenda interests. Current students, recent graduates, architects, designers and other creative minds are all welcome.
This three-week, full-time course presents a challenging programme of design studios, field study, seminars and lectures. It offers participants diverse design approaches, agendas and techniques and represents a uniquely intensive and intimate environment that aims to expand formal and intellectual resources.
