Staging Urban Landscapes – The Activation and Curation of Flexible Public Spaces


By B.Cannon Ivers


Launch Price £50 RRP £63.50


Open urban spaces are increasingly used as stages for events, installations and performances. An important prerequisite for their design in an increasingly heterogeneous multicultural urban landscape is the relationship between design, use, social function, curation and management.


Staging Urban Landscapes documents a variety of both temporary spaces as well as permanent installations via 28 international case studies– from the open-air courtyard of a museum to the design of a river bank promenade, through to a city park.


Contributions from internationally renowned experts including Charles Waldheim and James Corner discuss the various dimensions of the design of urban open spaces – from the planning stage to the design, implementation, and upkeep, taking into account functional requirements.


Join us for a drinks reception with author B. Cannon Ivers to celebrate the launch of this great new book, with an introduction by the Director of Landscape Urbanism at the AA Jose Alfredo Ramirez. 



All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.

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.
