The Architectural Association School of Architecture has maintained its independence for more than 160 years. It is not part of the university system of UCAS.

Main Responsibilities

Duties involve working closely with all members of the Print Studio and members within the school on a wide range of projects, including books, catalogues, invitations, posters, merchandise and electronic media.
