AA Files

AA Files
Records the rich variety of activities which take place within the AA school.

The magazine portrays the spirit and ambience of the AA - the preoccupations of staff and students, the passing parade of participants drawn from all parts of the world, the propositions and images, the formally spoken word, the drawings selected for exhibition and produced in the studio. Each issue is a unique record of the taste, sensibilities and priorities of a small and vital public institution. AA Files is read by students, academics and architects as an indicator of the latest trends, experimental projects and theoretical concerns.

Beginning in 1998 AA Files will be published three times a year. See below for new prices.
