AA.MEDIA

Architectural Association
Media Studies


AA MEDIA is an experimental testing ground for exploring and interrogating the tools of the discipline – tools with which we speculate, manipulate and play; compute, control and test; communicate, seduce, and provoke.

Acting as both training camp and laboratory, it is a diverse, multidisciplinary program where unexpected collisions and obsessive attention to detail expose a rich seam of creative potential. Media Studies presents an opportunity to develop individual practice, where students hone their dexterity with established and progressive media, actively testing modes of production through focused acts of doing and making.

COURSE GUIDELINES

MS1 requirements:
Students are required to attend and complete the submission requirements for FOUR courses (two in the Autumn Term and two in the Winter Term). A bound submission (a single portfolio or set of booklets) containing the work of the four courses plus an uploaded digital submission will serve as a final evaluation.

Your assessment is based on an average of 5 marks: one for each of the 4 courses individually plus one additional overall mark for the portfolio.
