Architects idea of beauty is different from everyone else's.
Comment on: With one in three students suffering, it’s time the RIBA and schools acted on mental health
I remember in the 60s how awful the schools of architecture were and what a lottery it was if you got through , mostly as to whether they liked you or not rather than the work you produced. Things should have changed by now.
I remember in the 60s a certain school of architecture was very similar to the description given by Morag, sadly the same situation still exists. Lecturers certainly had their favourites and ones they just did not like no matter what they produced.
Produce something that wasn't flat roof modernist and you would be shown the door. Apart from that it didn't matter about the design as long as it was drawn very neatly with rotring pens that always clogged up.
