The Architectural Association School of Architecture was originally set up in 1847 as a public forum and learned society, 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 4500 members;
a registered charity;
AA Publications, publisher of books and journals;
AA Bookshop, one of London’s leading architectural booksellers; and
a high-profile public events programme, including a wealth of exhibitions, lectures, symposia, seminars, conversations, research clusters and visits.
