Over the past four years students of the AA´s Intermediate Unit 2 have designed and built a series of experimental pavilions. Structured to follow a year in the life of the unit, this book presents the processes of the pavilions´ design and production, from concept ideas to workshop fabrication. Essays by the unit´s tutors, Charles Walker and Martin Self, explain the ambitions and pedagogic basis of the programme, rooted in the idea of experiential learning. The educational validity of this innovative design-build programme and its architectural output is explored through the voices of students, tutors and anonymous critics.
