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.

LAB

OPEN CLASSES
DIGITAL APPLICATIONS

Students from across the school are encouraged to enroll in Media Studies Lab courses to further their knowledge in a range of prominent digital applications. All courses are open to full-time AA students only, from all years of study, but not applicable for "year out" students.
The format for MS-Lab courses is structured around intense introductory one-day workshops of approximately 5-6 hours. In contrast to studio-based MS-Core courses, MS-Lab courses are not marked and are not a formal requirement for any students. They have been established as an accessible means for students to quickly gain technical knowledge in common applications that may not be offered elsewhere in their education or as a means of reinforcing existing technical knowledge. Courses will cover applications focusing on imaging and visualization, 3D modeling, automated computation, CAD and CAM operations, and physical simulation.


2018/19 COURSES

AA Media Lab courses consist of independent one-day courses.
All MS-Lab courses take place on Saturday.

Students can register for Lab and Workshops 7 days in advance here: https://www.aaschool.ac.uk/MEMBERSHIP/STUDENTS/CMSWORKSHOPS

Occasionally workshops need to be rescheduled, for up to date information please subscribe to the Media studies Calendar here:
