Amsterdam Academy of Architecture

We stand for an open and inquiring attitude, for experimentation, and we encourage students to adopt their own position. We consider the city of Amsterdam to be the laboratory for the design assignments of our students and lecturers. The Academy maintains close contacts with the professional community in the region, with public services, commissioning parties and developers. Our study programmes also occupy a prominent place internationally. The Academy has strong ties with related degree programmes abroad. Students from all corners of the world study at the Academy, international guest lecturers and speakers regularly visit, and students often participate in foreign excursions and projects.
