The most important educational issue for architects who have qualified in the last five years is ecological sustainability, according to new research by the RIBA's education department. The findings came as the RIBA passed new criteria for schools of architecture which put sustainability at the heart of all Part 1 and Part 2 courses.

Edinburgh architect Richard Murphy attacked the policy as a having 'a puritanical zeal' and 'a feeling of compulsory vegetarianism about it'.

But RIBA president Marco Goldschmied insisted that 'some positive discrimination' in favour of sustainable architecture was justifiable because 'we have done some truly stupid things'.
