About this course

History & Theory Studies courses run over all five years of academic study at the AA. They introduce students to the nature of architecture, not solely through the issue of design but also in the larger context of the discipline's relation to past, present, future and diverse cultures. Writing is a central skill for the developing architect - at a professional level, architects are increasingly expected to describe and analyse designs and buildings in written form. In response, History & Theory Studies has renewed these aspects of the courses, enabling students to develop their own points of view in seminars and to develop their skills in writing for course requirements.
