A major publication charting the 150-year history of the AA school and its development through the work of its students and teachers is in the course of preparation. It will include built work across the continents by celebrated graduates as well as student projects, short texts reflecting personal experiences of the AA as well as the views of those outside the school.

A series of essays will address not only the AA's past but also its current preoccupations, offering pointers for the construction of new, imaginative, and radical discourses for the future.
