Jack Hardy Diploma 7, Old Ken Toad Project.

The unit system emerged in the 1930s, during a period in which the AA played a vital role in introducing modern architecture to the UK. Alongside this innovative, project-directed form of teaching, the school implemented increasingly collaborative, experimental approaches to architectural education, refining a model of open, participatory study that has since gone on to greatly influence the teaching and learning of architecture across the world.
