Apply now to the AA’s summer programmes taking place at its home in Bedford Square, its forest in Hooke Park, Dorset, or at one of its Visiting Schools across the globe.

New in 2019 are the Summer Sessions. Small, select groups of participants will work with world-leading figures to inquire in a cross-disciplinary manner and to traverse the significance of decisive and emerging currents in modern architectural thought and practice. Teaching is research-led and strives for an open, public character by addressing not only specialists in any given field, but more broadly those seeking creative approaches to the fundamental questions facing contemporary society and the built environment.

In a new format, the Summer School is a programme of design studios, field study, seminars and lectures that expands formal and intellectual resources in architecture. Professionals pooled from disciplines as diverse as fashion, art, graphics, industrial design, urbanism and film will explore varying approaches, agendas and techniques to offer alternative methods to architectural design as an extended field of research.

Central to all Visiting School programmes—led by key emerging voices, globally-recognised architects and designers, and local experts—is that experimental, new and provocative forms of architecture are best learned from different forms of knowledge production. This summer twenty-four different programmes will promote, test and challenge global interests in architectural learning and exchange by embedding a diverse group of creative students in an array of unique rural, urban and internationalist contexts. Each programme dwells on global aspirations and local understandings, and questions and investigates notions of locality, tradition, and innovation.
