AA DRL: Architectural Association, Design Research Lab. London, UK.

February 16th, 2009. For the past ten years, the AA's DRL has been one of the most prescient and focused institutes exploring the use of new design tools within contemporary design and architecture. The current research program is titled, 'Proto Design', a course sequence where material production plays a central role in the methodology and end product of each design studio. (Update: Thank you to Alisa Andresek, the current Course Master for the warm invitation. The atmosphere at the AA feels fresh and driven. Great to see.)
