As a graduate of the Institute for Architecture at the University of Applied Arts one is part of a community of creative individuals, who coin and develop architecture.
Many of these IoA-Alumni act worldwide as independent architects, work in renowned architecture offices or are engaged in teaching and research at well-known universities. The alumni also contribute to the Angewandte’s international reputation to range among the best universities of art in the world.
It is the goal of the AAAC to network this creative potential, intensify the contacts between alumni and university and to build an alumni community, which supports the alumni’s work as well as the exchange between students and alumni.
