The AE was founded in 2011 to generate a public discussion about architecture and the architect’s role in shaping the discipline. We have since gone on to explore a variety of topics in an attempt to make sense of the recent past and current preoccupations. Themes are advanced but not adhered to dogmatically. This website is an archive of our activities.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK “I’m not impressed by the way people classify postmodern architects, or not. I can understand that it’s possible to put me in the same group for instance with Stirling or Rossi and with other kinds of postmodernists, but I think it’s too quick to classify things like that. For me, in my mind what happened was continuity in the evolution of architecture that goes back centuries, not from modern or postmodern. And in Postmodernism, the thing I don’t like, the thing I don’t consider good, was not to say no to Modernism, or to say no to history, which is very contradictory, because they use architectonic elements taken from history, but to break the continuity which I recognise in the evolution of architecture through the centuries.” Álvaro Siza - Subversives, 2014

ABOUT


The AE Foundation is an Unincorporated Association and Not-for-Profit Organisation.
        
The AE examines a broad range of contemporary and historic ideas and is a forum encouraging debate around architectural education and practice. We organise events, publish and exhibit material, informing practicing architects, academics and students of architecture about the significance of architecture as an intellectual pursuit. We examine the role of the architect as a public figure and what influence he/she can have in shaping intellectual culture and its practical application. We provide an open forum for discussion the resultant material of which is made publicly accessible.
