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

MS2 requirement
Students are required to attend and complete the submission requirements for TWO Courses (one in the Autumn Term and one in the Winter Term). Students must submit a bound submission for each course at the end of each term, thereby completing their MS2 requirements for entry into their 3rd year of study at the AA.

Note for 3rd Year students and above:
Whilst there are no submission requirements in Media Studies for the Diploma School, 3rd Year students and above are encouraged to attend courses in which they are interested. However, priority will be given to those students who are undertaking the course for submission purposes.
