'Most famous architects have been here (sooner or later)'

And they have. AA alumni have been a powerful presence among the leading architects of their generation since the school was set up. Even a brief trawl through the last century brings up the likes of Charles Jencks, Elia Zenghelis, Peter Cook, Dalibor Vesely, Joseph Rykwert, Daniel Libeskind, Rem Koolhaas, Zaha Hadid, Bernard Tschumi, Nigel Coates, Cedric Price, Nicholas Grimshaw … and many more.

AA School alumni are well represented in the best-known names in the profession worldwide and in the coming months, this page will lead to a new AA resource, celebrating their achievements. All AA Members are invited to contribute to these pages: with a profile (1200 words maximum) of an architect or practice, or of a building, development or other work involving AA students or staff, past or current.
