From Ceràmica Cumella: Shaping Ideas – an exploration of the artistic and scientific innovations emerging from the studio of Toni Cumella – to Frozen Relic: Arctic Works – a series of re-fabricated real world scenarios using millimetre perfect 3D scanning technology to stage and capture transitory moments on location across the world – the AA's year-long exhibition programme casts a wide net across geographies, histories and cultures to investigate the realm and role of architecture and its unique relationship to the school.

Dogma: 11 Projects
23/2/2013 – 22/3/2013
Projects and drawings from 2002–12 by the architecture and research studio led by Pier Vittorio Aureli and Martino Tattara.
For the past ten years Dogma has focused almost exclusively on large-scale projects such as citywide interventions. These projects venture beyond physical size to expand conceptual frameworks that radically rethink architecture. The exhibition explores 11 works developed since 2002 that collectively present the Dogma ethos: to see the urban project as a comprehensive domain in which architectural form, the political and the city are reclaimed as one ‘field’. By mobilising and reinvigorating drawing and text – the quintessential tools of architecture – these 11 projects range from speculative and theoretical proposals to investigations that question today’s modes of housing.
The publication supporting this exhibition was launched Thursday 7 March, following an evening lecture by Pier Vittorio Aureli.
