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 “History for me provides the intellectual topography to know where I’m going. It would be very naïve of me to think that the things I’m doing are inventions or expressions of my soul. These things don’t interest me at all. History for me is something about the politics of the design. It’s the way I communicate to the general culture, and also to its political aggregate state. ” Marcel Meili - 2013
