A question for our architect friends on the boards

Post by EJ »

Where does a degree from the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture rank in the profession? Respect? Contempt? Neither?



I'm curious because the school is currently undergoing their accredidation process.



Thanks

I have not seen it on any list of nationally ranked programs. Many nationally ranked schools bring in nationally/internationally recognized luminaire architects to teach and lecture. This is particularly true of the East and West Coast schools of architecture. This creates a conduit that works both ways much to the benefit of the students and the architectural program. My perception, which or may not be accurate, is that the FLW School of Architecture follows a more hermetic approach. The FLW School of Architecture is quite small and flies under the radar screen. In my opinion it is currently underachieving of its significant potential.
