  • Location: The Architectural Assocation School of Architecture and the Paul Mellon Centre

An international conference convened by the Architectural Association and the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art with a rich programme of presentations, panel discussions, distinguished keynotes, and an open jury to celebrate the centenary of women at the AA.

AA XX 100 is the project to commemorate the centenary of women’s admission to the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London in 1917. To date it has comprised a raft of complementary enterprises including an annual lecture series and an ongoing programme to conduct filmed interviews with AA alumnae. The project culminates in autumn 2017 with an exhibition (October - December 2017), a book (Breaking the Mould: AA Women in Architecture 1917-2017) and an international conference (AA Women and Architecture in Context 1917-2017) run in partnership with the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art.
