The exhibition Drawing Ambience. Alvin Boyarsky and the Architectural Association presents around 50 masterworks of contemporary architectural drawings penned by celebrated architects and assembled by the long-term chairman of the Architectural Association School of Architecture (AA) in London, Alvin Boyarsky. The exhibition has already been on show at the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum at the Washington University in St. Louis, at the Museum of Art, Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, and at the Cooper Union in New York and is now coming to Berlin.

The AA is justifiably considered the most important melting pot of architectural talent and has produced many Stirling and Pritzker prize winners. The renowned alumni of the school include Rem Koolhaas, Zaha Hadid, Nigel Coates, David Chipperfield, Ben van Berkel and Will Alsop.

Drawing Ambience: Alvin Boyarsky and the Architectural Association is coorganized by the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum at Washington University in St. Louis and the Museum of Art, Rhode Island School of Design, Providence. It is cocurated by Igor Marjanović and Jan Howard.
