Germany, the birthplace of modern architecture - check the Bauhaus-University Weimar, the Technical University of Berlin and the Ludwig University of Munich (some of the best in the world), to have a start.

Just ask if you're curious about more

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

Wherever you study there's a 99% chance you'll be doing loft conversions for £5 an hour

1% chance you'll make it big. Thousands of architects qualify each year - you've really got to have something special to stand out, and to not end up on unemployment benefit.

The plurality of it's architecture and the passion in the matter make it one of the most interesting city in the world if you're into urbanism and architecure.

I love Barcelona, but I hate these superlatives
There are many cities, especially in Europe, with great variety of architectures, I could give thousands of examples.
Barcelona is a beautiful city with a modern and important school of architecture, but it is not "THE capital of architecture"... tnx

¿Wich other city in Europe has all the european styles of the history?



I mean, romanic, barroc, roman ruins, renaissance, modern, gotic, modernism, classisism, neoclassisism...

And there are not just little exemples of architecure styles, there are impressive constructions in all styles.

Rome? Florence? Milan? London? Naples? Paris? (I am Italian, I have listed many Italian )... or you have never been out of Barcelona?

Of course. Actually i'm not from Barcelona, i just live here...

But it's not the same.
Paris, London or Madrid, just to give some cases, are quite uniform and homogeneous cities, and the examples of other kinds of architecure out of it's own style (like repetitive and repetitive french style in Paris or english style in London), are just extremely low. Barcelona has of course, the typical catalan modernism, but other kinds of architecture are all arround the city.
It's not the same.

Italy is different it's true, but not exactly: Roman ruins, Reinassance and Barroc are the predominant styles.

Not to mention that in addition to ancient Rome, in central and southern Italy, there are also great examples of Greek and Egyptian art, Rome and Naples which have 4 floors of underground (Roman, Etruscan and Greek) ... in addition to several ancient civilizations Celtic, Mesopotamian, Phoenician, Paleolithic, etc etc ...

Italy has many buildings of 800 (Piazza della Repubblica in Florence), neoclassical (Monumento a Vittorio Emanuele), art nouveau and deco (Gallery of Milan and Naples, Fairy House, Casa Coppedé), rationalism Italian (Rome, EUR district) etc etc, to contemporary buildings like the skyline or underground Naples and all that is happening in Rome and Milan (MAXXI, Citylife, Nuvola Fuksas, MIC, CERBA, etc etc).

Sorry for this emphasis, but my pride, for the beauty of my country, does not make me consider it "THE capital of ...", but some of the beautiful things we have in Europe that are so different

The best architects of all time worked in Florence and Rome. Concerning modern architecture, I prefer Paris. I've been in Barcelona 2 times, nothing special, definitely one of the most overrated european cities. Not the best spanish city, Seville is much better!

Rome, for example. In fact it is called the Eternal City. It's the only city in which you can find all the styles you like.

What kind of barroc, roman, romanic, renaissance buildings are there in Barcelona? Barcelona is half gothic and half modern.

Are you sure you know the city you are talking about? There are entire districts that have different kind of buildings from what you say.

I think you don't know Paris and French architecture: Gothic, French Classicism/neoclassicism (popularised by Versailles and also French Castles), French Renaissance, Rococo Style, Second Empire style (which you can find all across Europe/World), Beaux-Arts style (from the Beaux-Arts school of Paris), French Provincial style, Mansard Roofs..etc

All these styles can be found in many countries in the world but have their roots in France and were popularised by French architecture !!

Except all these styles, you can find in Paris one of the best skylines of Europe (La Défense) and also many others architectures: Roman Churchs, Medieval, Romantic, Baroque, Art-Nouveau, Art deco, Industrial, Modernism, Post-modernism and even Roman ruins... etc etc

Some examples:

crediting done !!!

You have the right to dislike Paris, but what are your worries about pictures, they can illustrate points of view.

In a forum about Architecture, pictures are the best way to show it, better than any argument or discutions !

Besides, in this forum there is many many pictures which aren't credited (and nobody has deleted them), I don't mean this is right, but it's a fact !

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

About Paris architectures, I forgot: Greek revival (Neo-Grec), International Style, Neo-Gothic, Neo-Byzantine...

Just because other people do it the wrong way you also have to?
Because there are people who steal things you also have to? Think about it.


Anyway, this thread is about the choice of a university. I don't think your photos support this decision in any way. Well, we could make it a photo thread and post random images from all around the world, but what's the point?

This guy didn't really get one reasonable response yet.
