The AA Public Programme, an essential component of an AA education, presents a collection of lectures, exhibitions, publications, workshops, symposia, open seminars, gallery talks, building visits, and performances dedicated to contemporary architecture culture. Our programme of events brings together thousands of members, visitors, critics and provocateurs to discuss new architectural ideas, discourse, and forms of practice.

Highlights from our Winter 2019 programme include:

New Canonical Histories
Thursdays, 6:30pm in the AA Lecture Hall
New Canonical Histories is a new initiative running across the Winter and Spring terms that addresses the decolonisation of knowledge. The series invites architects, historians, and artists whose work and research redefines inherited historical models giving us tools to not only reimagine our past but also our future.

Cocktails and Conversations
Fridays, 7pm in the AA Bar
Every Friday, Intermediate and Diploma Units present ideas, projects, and agendas developed within the school. The event brings together students, academic staff and guests around the themes and topics of unit briefs to discuss and question their relevance, strengths and weaknesses in relation to contemporary forms of study, speculation, discourse, and practice. Each session is fuelled by cocktails designed by each unit followed by a special off-the-record performance.

HOME: Questioning post-Brexit relationships
Mondays, 6:30pm in the AA Lecture Hall
These conversations, chaired by Florian Idenburg & Manijeh Verghese, explore and question how the concept of "Home" will be redefined within Europe as Britain deals with the possibility of leaving the EU on March 29, 2019.

January 21: Homeland - Maria Shéhérazade Giudici, Merijn Oudenampsen & Sam Jacob
February 11: Border - Michael Young, Michelle Provoost & Platon Issaias

Architecture of the Immersive Internet
Friday, March 1, 2019, 10am in the AA Lecture Hall
The inhabitable internet might eventually become a collective place for all humans to live, work, and play. Based on this assumption, what will the spatial internet look and feel like? Organised by AA tutors Lara Lesmes and Fredrik Hellberg together with curator James Taylor-Foster, this symposium brings together psychologists, neuroscientists, technologists, storytellers, designers, and architects to create the first draft treatise on the Architecture of the Immersive Internet.

Open Seminars
In addition to our programme of lectures and symposia, Open Seminars are an opportunity to engage with specific agendas being explored within the school to a wider audience. Three Open Seminars ran in parallel from this Autumn onwards—Welcome to the Boring Revolution by Dark Matter Labs, Domestication and its Discontents by Pier Vittorio Aureli and Maria S. Giudici, and Evidentiary Aesthetics by Eyal Weizman with Christina Varvia and Merve Anil—of which you can still attend the last session on February 26.

All events are free and open to everyone. For the full calendar of events please visit our website or sign up to our newsletter to receive more information.
