Careless Cambridge is set to do a Bristol


I went to the University of Bristol, which had the best school of architecture in Britain in 1970 but was then closed by an ignorant university to save money. I thought Cambridge was cleverer.

I understand that, after careful analysis, the Cambridge School of Architecture cannot achieve a perfect research credit rating. Guess what: neither can Manchester. Are they tackling the wrong problem? Have they missed the question of the fallibility of performance indicators?

Clearly architecture is too difficult for boffins.
