Hooke Park is the Architectural Association’s woodland campus in Dorset, UK. It contains a growing educational facility for design, workshop, construction and landscape-focused activities. The site is home to the Design + Make post graduate masters programme, sees visits from AA units and programmes, and hosts numerous short courses, lectures and events through the year.
