The Architectural Association publishes titles that explore developments in architecture, engineering, landscape and urbanism, as well as the fields that touch on them – philosophy, history, art and photography. Founded as a means of examining influential contemporary projects and opening up ideas to debate, AA Publications has a long tradition of publishing architects, artists and theorists early in their careers. Approximately eight to ten titles are published each year plus two issues of our journal AA Files (available by the issue or by subscription).

fm-scenario / the listener’s voice is a radio and software-inspired platform for generating narratives and investigating the architectures of discourse. Based around a publicly accessible online studio, users can edit radio programmes from an archive of works by artist Eran Schaerf. These programs are broadcast by the Bavarian Broadcasting Corporation, serving as scenarios for a series of exhibitions and as opening montage statements for a series of blog-like publications.
This first fm-scenario edition coincided with the group exhibition Between Walls and Windows: Architecture and Ideology (House of World Cultures, Berlin, 2012) which presented ten location-specific productions by international artists and architects. The focus of this first issue derived from the exhibition and from the montage.
