Tuesday 19 November, 6.30pm

Attire: BlAAck Tie
 
 

Programme

The Silver Gala, in support of the AA’s public programmes and publications, will take place around a series of dinner tables, performances and an auction in our home in Bedford Square. Voices from the AA – past and present – alumni, architects, artists and friends, in London and from around the world, will come together to eat, celebrate our history and debate our future over delicious food and wine and a full programme of performances.

 
 

Architecture in Translation

Today there are 7111 languages spoken around the world but it is estimated that by the turn of the century nearly half of the world’s languages are likely to be extinguished. At the AA we have students from more than 80 nationalities and we speak more than 40 languages. To celebrate and build on this diversity, and to recognise the value of language in the production of space and ideas, this year we are launching Architecture in Translation, a project that aims to build a multilingual and multicultural approach to architecture today.

 

A limited number of general sale tickets will be available in October.

When time,

distance and the material world are being neurotically rearranged

and dissolved by digital systems the

Summer Garden Party

becomes an essential tool

for not only having your brain tattooed by the work of 779 students

but for giving support to Scholarships and Bursaries

for future creative work at the AA

Summer Garden Party

Bedford Square Gardens, WC1B 3DR

The Summer Garden Party is a new tradition we are starting this year: an evening of music, food and good company in celebration of our shared future and past. It will mark a historical moment for the school and bring together our wider community for what promises to be an unforgettable night. The evening is in support of Scholarships and Bursaries for future generations of deserving students.

Carefully curated wine, mead and beer from the most sustainable organic producers we could find and ethically minded food – delicious canapes followed by a light summer buffet.

DJ Misha will be spinning records while you whisper to blackberries and murmur to birches

Dress code: Summer cocktail attire (preferably with gardening gloves)

Entry: Guest names will be on the door for both the Private View and the Summer Garden Party. Please enter through no. 36 Bedford Square for the Private View and the South Gate entrance for the Summer Garden Party
