Introduction Week for New Students 2015

The AA will welcome the 2015/16 cohort of new students on Monday 21 September 2015. Please come to 36 Bedford Square at 10am, where you will be able to collect a welcome pack, which will provide you with everything you need to know for the week. The admissions team will be around to answer any questions you may have.

Introduction Week is a valuable opportunity to familiarise yourself with London and the AA, as well as to meet fellow new students. Visits are arranged to places of architectural interest and to architectural practices, and there are introductory talks about the different parts of the school. Compulsory inductions to the library, workshop, computer room and health and safety also take place this week.

On Monday the Director of the school will provide you with key information about the AA. You will also attend course/programme introductions providing an important opportunity to learn more about the course and meet AA tutors/programme directors. On Tuesday 22nd September you will be required to attend registration and compulsory inductions throughout the day.

Trips to places of interest, exhibitions and office visits take place on Wednesday and Thursday of Intro Week. The office visits are unique opportunities to visit practices that have a connection with the AA. You are entitled to attend one visit out of the trips listed. However, you will not be able to sign up for a trip if it clashes with a compulsory library or workshop induction. Please be aware that you will not be able to sign up for a trip if you have not pre-registered.

On Friday of this week everyone is invited to attend the AA boat trip down the Thames followed by a picnic in Bedford Square. The Student Forum will also organise various events throughout the week. Further details will be available in the coming weeks.

Over the summer we recommend you keep an eye on the AA website and facebook page for updates and events. Full unit briefs for the 2015/16 academic year will be available via the website in early September.

Three-day workshops open to all students

The FIRST YEAR STUDIO in collaboration with the INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL is putting forward two workshops open to all students on: Imaginary inhabitants, creatures, genders, and their habitat.
 
Dates: Wednesday 6th, Thursday 7th, Friday 8th of May from 10:00am. 
 
 
CITY OF BACHELORS by Ana Araujo (Intermediate 2)
For over five hundred years men have been designing our homes and cities; and defining the language of architecture. Inspired by an exception to this rule – a 40-square-metre flat Irish de- signer Eileen Grey conceived for her lover Jean Badovici in 1930 – we will create an imaginary city based on what is believed to be a potentially feminine architectural language. 
 
Materials: One block of genuine silver leaf, ten sheets of black foamboard, A3 size, one can of spray mount, twenty sheets of white paper, five sheets of black card, A3 size, + model making materials (cutting matt, scalpel, ruler etc).

 

 

THE MENAGERIE OF MISCEGENATIONS by Manijeh Verghese (Intermediate 11)

Can we invent new forms of life, predict a future evolution of hybrid animals, plants and everything in between, by altering the course of evolution through the design of new species and their habitats? This three day workshop will start with the invention of hybrid creatures that fuse existing species. We will then design the spaces where these beasts will live and be observed. Finally, we will combine our invented life forms into a collective taxonomy drawing to track our alternate evolution and construct our new menagerie of miscegenations by aggregating our isometric spaces into a fantastical group collage.

Materials: A0 sheets of paper for the combined drawings, coloured copies of your miscegenation and menagerie drawings to collage onto the larger sheets, glue, scissors, pens, pencils, ink, watercolours, rulers, protractors. 

 

If you are interested to take part in one of these workshops come to the FIRST YEAR STUDIO. You will find a sign up sheet near the offices. Deadline to sign up: Monday 4th of May or send an email to: monia.de_marchi@aaschool.ac.uk.
