2A International Institute of Architecture & Culture
The purpose of the 2A International Institute of Architecture & Culture [2AIIAC] is to advance the quality of architectural education and also to promote the quality of architecture in the world. The Institute provides a forum for generating information on aspects of architectural education and architectural research.
The Institute plans to build a network in the field of education, fostering discussions, exchanges and a common policy in 2A’s activities to advance the quality of architectural education.
Architects have a particular social responsibility since architecture is an art with social obligations and applications. This understanding of architecture has characterized the international activities of 2A Magazine for over 16 years, and has earned professional recognition worldwide in regards to architectural feedback and advantages.
Based on the programme, 2A International Institute of Architecture & Culture teaches architecture in dialogue and the talk between the needs of architecture and the architects. it is a process of feedback, in which the parties involved display a mutual interest in and influence on each other.
The schooling and training at the Institute [2AIIAC] is based on such a dialogue in the design process. This approach assumes that the architect represents society and not himself.
Working together with fellow students from all over the world gives 2AIIAC students an opportunity to tackle these issues directly.
