Google it.

I'd expect all the big cities - London, Paris, Barcelona etc to be labelled the "best".

Which country would you like to study in?

The greatest city on the planet to study architecture is none other than London. One need only look at the world renowned talent that stems from the city.

If you are asking for "places", it could be anywhere with good & proper architectural concept. My personal preferences would be London, Rotterdam, New York or Melbourne.

But if you're talking about institution, the one come to my mind is Cooper Union in New York

Barcelona seems like a good option. Few cities have so many architects and the inhabitants have a passion for architecture as well.

Else places like London where there are world class faculties of any type.

If you want to become an engineer/architect follow Caltrava's footsteps: Following graduation in 1975, he enrolled in the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zürich, Switzerland for graduate work in civil engineering.

Not so sure about that to be honest - although the AA and the Bartlett in their respective ways are pretty fine schools, there are other good schools just in the UK. It's a good place to work it's true (before the recession at least), as there's a huge range of really quality practices doing work all around the world... which makes it bloody competitive too

Not sure where is best place to study... to be honest if the school is half decent, it's about the city and the scene as much as anything I guess. Barcelona is a great place to see architecture and to practice it, but is the architecture school necessarily the best? Dunno... but garantee you'd have fun and it's a city that knows design.

Some good schools in the US too no doubt?

ETSABarcelona:

Barcelona is the most plural city in architecture styles, it's quite interesting to walk in street and take ideas. Also it's architecture universitys are great, one of the best in the world.

You guys are def. overrating Barcelona in its meaning and university quality. There's way better stuff throughout Europe.

well, my roommate's doing architecture here in Torino and would like to go somewhere for an Erasmus exchange programme. he has been told both by students and professors, to choose Amsterdam, some places in Germany - but if you're not fluent in german it might be hard - and, in Spain, Seville or Madrid.

hope it can help... for sure you gotta travel a lot, don't stick where you are!
