AA Files 57–71

Selected page spreads

AA Files is the Architectural Association School of Architecture’s journal of record and the successor to a long line of AA house journals (including titles such as AA Notes, AA Journal, Arena and AAQ) that began with the founding of the school in 1847. Launched in 1981 by the AA’s then chairman, Alvin Boyarsky, the journal appears twice a year and is sent out to members of the Architectural Association and individual subscribers and is distributed to a select global network of bookshops for sale.

The AA Files is now under the editorship of Maria Shéhérazade Giudici, the fifth of its editors, who follows Thomas Weaver (2007-2018), David Terrien (2004-2006), Mark Rappolt (2000-2003), and Mary Wall (1981-1999). Issue #76, the first issue under the editorship of Giudici, will be launched on Thursday 20 June 2019, and will explore a glossary of architectural terms from A to Z that are understood to be relevant to architecture today.

Current and back issues are available to purchase online and from the AA Bookshop and other select booksellers worldwide. A complete digital archive of the AA Files is available to Members in the AA Members' site and via www.jstor.orgTo view the digital archive online become a Member todayTo pre-order AA Files #76, or for subscriptions, sales and distribution enquiries please contact bookshop@aabookshop.net.
