The paper deals with the profound heritage of Moshaven Mostafavi, one of the leading teachers at London Architectural Association at the end of 1970s – the 1980s, when he was the tutor for many students. London Architectural Association was one of the most influential architecture schools in the second part of the XXth century. First is because its radical change in the pedagogical process in 1960-s and unprecedented interest to the problems of architecture evolution and contemporary urban development. Among the students and teachers of AA were Rem Koolhaas, Zaha Hadid, Bernard Tschumi, Leon Krier, Daniel Libeskind, Nicholas Grimshaw, Steven Holl and many other outstanding authors. Moshaven Mostafavi, who graduated from AA in 1976, took an active part in preparing the new studying courses. Together with his students Mostafavi researched the opportunities for reprogramming of historical urban environment, looking for the new routes for contemporary architecture in frames of European cities.
