Architectural Association (AA)
Most South African architects seeking formal education in architecture before the establishment of teaching programmes in the discipline in the country went to study at the AA in London.
It is the oldest independent school of architecture in the United Kingdom and was founded in 1847 by two dissatisfied young architects, Robert Kerr and Charles Grey to provide a self-directed, independent education at a time when the profession of architecture had yet to have set curricula. The School was formally established in 1890.
Leonard William Thornton WHITE was appointed vice-principal c1937
