The AA's invisible pavilion

Fans of the Architectural Association’s summer pavilions will be saddened to hear the innovative one-off structure will be absent from London’s Bedford Square this year

The school’s intermediate students are instead working on an undisclosed project in Hooke Park (a working forest in Dorset owned and operated by the AA) described by one insider as ‘nothing special’. (Last year’s pavilion is picture above.)

Is cost-cutting at play? The AA has embarked on a major project to consolidate its central London campus, fitting out three neighbouring Georgian townhouses with internal linkages. It sounds costly and the project architect is secret, but don’t expect anything flash. Sources tell Astragal that grand architectural gestures will be absent.
