OVERVIEW | AAVS BANGALORE 2013


The AA Visiting School is a platform created by the AA to further extend this engagement and to learn from the realities of today’s highly distributed,global architectural culture. Since its launch in January 2008 in Dubai with a small design workshop led by AA tutors and a brilliant group of local partners and supporting networks, the AA Visiting School has grown into a worldwide programme of short courses, design and research workshops of extraordinary depth, quality and learning.
