ebooks are now available worldwide on iBookstore and Amazon.

Following on from last year’s inaugural ebook of the AA’s long-established end-of-year anthology, the digital AA Book 2014 offers an overview of the AA’s 2013 / 14 academic year. Extending the physical book, it features hundreds of drawings, models, installations, photographs and other material documenting the world’s most international and experimental school of architecture.

AA Book 2014 is free to download on iBookstore for iPad, iPhone and Mac OS 10.9 or later.

Welcome to the second edition of the swipeable, sortable and re-routable version of our annual and celebrated AA Book. Every June, on the opening night of its summer Projects Review exhibition, the AA School of Architecture releases something extraordinary: a 500-page anthology documenting the year in the life of the school. That this monster of a monograph is completed and delivered in bound, physical form, on the very day the school year draws to a close, is testament to the AA’s ability to seemingly warp time as well as space. This digital version further extends this mandate, and with it, the elegant, simple organisation of its paper-based predecessor is complemented with a layer or two of unexpected new material. It’s our hope that the AA Book ebook offers yet another way for you to enjoy something of the very same feeling many of us have here at the AA – of moving through the future of architecture in unexpected ways. Swipe, pinch, flick, enjoy. See you on the other side.

THE AA RECEIVES THE POWER TO AWARD ITS OWN DEGREES

The Architectural Association receives Taught Degree Awarding Powers by the Lords of Her Majesty’s Most Honourable Privy Council.

The Architectural Association (AA), the oldest independent school of architecture in the United Kingdom, is pleased to announce that it has been granted the power to award its own degrees. As of 1 October 2019, the AA has the right to establish new academic programmes and degree awards and is working to create some of the world’s most pioneering courses in architecture to shape and build the future.

Taught Degree Awarding Powers (TDAP) give UK higher education institutions the right to award bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Prospective students worldwide can apply to the AA Foundation Course (Foundation Diploma), Experimental Programme BA(Hons), Diploma Programme (MArch), and nine taught postgraduate programmes encompassing History and Critical Thinking in Architecture (MA), Projective Cities (Taught MPhil) and Sustainable Environmental Design (MSc/MArch), amongst others.

AA Director, Eva Franch said, ‘since our founding in 1847 we have never ceased to create new horizons, institutionally and academically. This is a significant milestone for the AA and demonstrates how we have grown and progressed as an institution that has always valued independence. Receiving TDAP marks a new era for our institution; these are exciting times for the AA. The process has required considerable work from all members of staff and students. I would like to take this opportunity to credit them for this major achievement’.

President of the AA Council, Victoria Thornton added, ‘the TDAP process has recognised our strong governance, academic standards, scholarship and teaching as well as the environment supporting the delivery of taught higher education programmes’.

The School’s application for Taught Degree Awarding Powers was supported by the Architects Registration Board, the Royal Institute of British Architects and The Open University.
