Saturday 6 July

Architectural Association

AA Projects Review is the Architectural Association’s annual end of year show. Student work is displayed throughout the buildings to showcase the different unit or programme’s year-long brief and agenda. Every student who has passed through the Architectural Association, from Foundation to PhD, Zaha Hadid to Richard Rogers, has had their work scrutinised by the public in the annual AA Projects Review.

This year, almost 800 students will showcase their visions for the future of architecture, to anyone with an inquiring eye. This year’s show will merge the work of students and alumni, breaking the traditional boundaries between academia and practice to look at the much longer trajectory of an AA project.

No ticket or booking is necessary for this exhibition!
