A sister school will also begin this year that will cooperate and challenge the AA Istanbul Visiting School, AA Athens Visiting School, which is collaborative relationship between the Architectural Association School and the National Technical University of Athens. In contrast with ‘Connected tower’, the AA Athens School theme ‘Cipher City’, takes on crafting space horizontally. The hypothesis of this school is to hewn unique kinetic experiential models derived from the horizontal dynamic informational pathways.
Both schools together as part of the AA visiting school will collaborate under the AI umbrella, where one will be the continuation of the other. The opposing dimensions verticality versus horizontality is linked through a common platform.
Participants are encouraged to join both workshops in order to experience the transition between the two architectural limits.
