Encompassing myriad forms and agendas, the Visiting School courses and workshops are built around agenda-driven project briefs that are pursued and shaped by students working intensively in small groups led by AA tutors. Central to each is the idea that experimental, new and provocative forms of architecture are best learned by doing. The school promotes, tests and challenges global interests in architectural learning and exchange by embedding a diverse group of creative students and tutors in an array of unique rural, urban and international contexts. From continental Europe to the Middle East, Asia, Australia and the Americas, the AA Visiting School offers new and unexpected learning opportunities all over the world. Places on each course are limited, and anybody who would like to further their architectural knowledge and skills can apply.
