The top 10 British universities: Architectural league table (part two)


I do not agree with that list. The Glasgow school of art should be number 1. It is one of the most thought provoking, holistically designed buildings I have ever experienced. And it was designed with total functionality in mind - the human experience flourishes alongside the immense beauty of the building. Maybe it's Scottish-ness is what prevented it from being number 1 as I have no doubts that if that building was in any English city we wouldn't be having this debate in the first place. Also, the university of Cambridge is a concrete monstrosity but 'trendy' arty types like to say how much they love it so's to embellish their credentials for being on a higher level of perceiving architecture to normal folks who would think it is ghastly.
