AA Shool Projects Review 2008 [Link]
Architectural Association, School of Architecture
I. Architecture as Projects, in Review
> ‘Young people are fitter to invent than to judge;
> fitter for execution than for counsel;
> and more fit for new projects than for settled business.’
> Francis Bacon
> By longstanding tradition,
> Projects Review is the title for this annual compendium
> of student work at the Architectural Association School of Architecture,
> consisting of a book and, in a parallel convention,
> our end-of-year exhibition as well as this site.
> Strictly speaking, neither is a project nor a review,
> at least in the everyday sense that architects tend to use these terms.
> Even the most avantgardeof settings (or intentions)
> can get caught up in a web of associations (convention,
> repetition, habit) more architectural than even our name.
> I would suggest that such is the case with the AA’s enduring reuse
> of the same title at a school whose students
> have uncovered countless kinds of new architectural projects
> by simply going against exactly this kind of precedent.
