The aac Academy for Architectural Culture is a private, non-profit organization, located in Hamburg and founded by the architects von Gerkan, Marg and partners. With research studies and intensive courses held throughout the year, the aac is dedicated to finding solutions to relevant architectural issues and the further education of young architects from different cultures. Through public symposiums, exhibitions and book publications the academy’s working results are made available for discussion with decision makers, and in particular, the general public.

The aac is sponsored by the gmp Foundation, established in 2007, for the purpose of supporting the education of young architects.

The teaching sessions reflect the gmp-philosophy, experience and detailing of architecture relevant to its social context. Insights are given on how to reach completion of a variety of tasks on a national and international stage.

workshop
For three and a half weeks (24 days) you will develop a contribution to an architectural topic (1 design) relevant for our future, by working intensively in an international team of four students (4 people). Supported by your own tutor and under the guidance of a gmp partner you will be able to develop your design in discussion with prestigious architects.


scholarship
A scholarship for every participant is available to cover the workshop fees and costs for all working materials. The accommodation for the entire time of the workshop in Hamburg will also be covered entirely by the scholarship.

schedule
The aac-workshops for Bachelor/Master students in architecture and young graduates take place twice a year during the lecture free periods in March and September.
