  • Comment on: Does architectural education need an overhaul?

    Morag Macrae's comment 4-Jun-2013 9:15 pm

    I've written about my experience at architecture school in the uk. It's the only degree that I know where hard-working, clever, creative people are failed at the end of third year and leave with no qualification. Yet it happens all the time. The first degree should be a more general degree and the subjective design element kept out of it. Only in Part 2 should the course focus seriously on design. My book, The Appeal of Architecture (available on Amazon) gives a unique insight to how the architecture schools in the uk operate goto http://theappealofarchitecture.blogspot.co.uk/ It's free the 1st Sat of each month.
