Architectural Association, Inc. Statement of Public Benefit
The Architectural Association, Inc. is a registered charity and a company
limited by guarantee. The Association's principal activity is the operation of a
school of architecture and a learned society. The primary object of the
Association, as stated in its Memorandum of Association is ‘for the public
benefit to promote and afford facilities for the study of Architecture ...’.
In fulfilment of its objects, the Association of members and the school are inextricably bound together in the promotion and advancement of learning. Through its school, the Architectural Association acts as a forum for ideas open to a global architectural community and, being a major centre for debate, it offers a principal venue in London for an unparalleled public programme or architectural lectures, symposia and exhibitions, together with accompanying publications. Membership of the Association is open to all architects and others connected with or interested in the allied arts, professions or disciplines. The diversity and international character of its membership is a significant source of the Association's strength and vitality.
The Architectural Association is continually seeking to enhance the provision of its public programmes through an ambitious schedule of free evening lectures and exhibitions of student work, and the work of established and lesser-known architects. The school’s bursaries and scholarship programmes continue to be robust and to at least partially fund approximately 25 per cent of its undergraduate students each year. The Architectural Association has also begun work to improve the cataloguing of materials in its archive, and to widen access to these materials through promoting the Architectural Association’s collection to others in the scholarly community. While use of the Association's Library is free to members, it is open to non-members for a minimal fee. The Architectural Association and its Trustees are committed to the provision of public benefit and have prioritised the Association’s continued enhancements in this area for the year ahead.
