Summer: Furnishing the Landscape, Hooke Park, Dorset

Monday 3 – Friday 7 July 2017

Building on a series of workshops studying the context and landscape of the forest, the Maeda workshop will make further explorations into design.

The workshop will take place at Hooke Park in Dorset and is open to AA students and members. The course will run over two separate sessions, and participants are encouraged to join for both.


1) You can make an application by completing the online application found under ‘Links and Downloads’ on the AA Visiting School page. If you are not able to make an online application, e-mail 

2) Once you complete the online application, please e-mail it to

A CV or a portfolio is not required but a brief letter of intention is desirable. The deadline for applications is June 2017.

All participants travelling from abroad are responsible for securing any visa required, and are advised to contact their home embassy early. After payment of fees, the AA School can provide a letter confirming participation in the workshop.


MAEDA is free and open to AA Members, students and staff. If you are not yet an AA member, then please subscribe for membership as we can only consider applicants who are AA members. 

Students are welcome to bring their own laptops, digital equipment and modelmaking tools. Please ensure this equipment is covered by your own insurance as the AA takes no responsibility for items lost or stolen at the workshop.

Students should be aware that visas are required for Visiting Schools held both in the UK and abroad and it is the student's responsibility to investigate what is required via the relevant embassies in their country.

 (For non-British citizens)

Due to Government changes with regard to health treatment in the UK, you will be required to have the following:
For students from the European Union
 If you are a student from another country in the European Union, here for less than six months, you will require a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC, previously called E111) which must be obtained from your home country.  
 The card is not an alternative to travel insurance.  It will not cover any private medical healthcare or costs, such as mountain rescue in ski resorts, being flown back to your home country, or lost or stolen property. Therefore it is important to have both an EHIC and a valid private travel insurance policy.  Some insurers now insist that you hold an EHIC, and many will waive the excess if you have one.
For students from non-European Union countries, ie international students
 If you are here for less than six months, please note you are not covered for National Health Service treatment in the UK.  You are therefore required to obtain travel/health insurance from your own country.
