Architectural projects drive the teaching and learning of our tutors, staff and students, but they also inform how we organise our calendar, buildings and our publications. One of the remarkable features of the annual AA Book is the fact that each year it is produced in real time, alongside the projects and portfolios it documents. Unlike other institutions, which periodically step back from the annual or other demands of production and learning to reflect on features a posteriori, the AA School is motivated by something else entirely – they believe in the simultaneity of architectural invention and its presentation. This volume illustrates that spirit and it is through the pages of books that architectural ideas travel in the most comprehensive and intelligent directions.
