Paolo Rosselli
Graduating with a degree in architecture from Milan Polytechnic in 1977, Paolo Rosselli began his career in architectural photography under the guidance of art historian Arturo Schwarz, documenting temples throughout India. Since then his approach to architecture through photography has seen him focus on contemporary architecture, such as his work with quarterly magazine Lotus, and on modern architects such as Giuseppe Terragni. Rosselli has exhibited works at the XLV Venice Biennial (1993, 2004 and 2006 respectively) and has lectured in photography at both Milan Polytechnic and Goldsmiths, University of London. With a back catalogue of more than 20 books published Rosselli’s most recent work is Sandwich Digitale (Quodlibet, 2009). He is currently working on a photography and text project documenting the changing world of India. Rosselli lives and works in Milan.

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 Certificate), 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.
