The Future of Architectural Education

This week has seen a number of critics slamming the current ways of teaching of many architectural schools. With the increase in fees, prospective students in the field of architecture are looking at graduating with debts in excess of £100,000. What does this mean for the profession in general and how long will it take for drastic changes to occur?  Included in this recent backlash is Will Hunter, the deputy editor of Architectural Review, Terry Farrell (in his review of UK Architecture) and Oliver Wainwright, The Guardian. Very much recommended read!
