Today, architecture schools are truly international in their intake, as students are able to select from courses worldwide. For school leavers and undergraduates, the choice is bewildering. Where different institutions provide very different courses and ultimately very different architects, the very act of shopping for a degree is an incredibly important stage in an architecture student's career.

This book is set to become a touchstone publication for anyone involved in architectural education, from the academic to the aspiring student.It provides interviews with four of the most influential educators/heads of schools around the world:

Peter Cook, Chair, the Bartlett School of Architecture, London, UK

Bernard Tschumi, Dean, School of Architecture at Columbia University, USA

Leon van Schaik, Innovation Professor of Architecture, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Australia

Elia Zenghelis, Berlage, DusseldorfThis is followed by short self-biographies of eleven further prominent figures including Rem Koolhaas, Anthony Vidler and Paul VirilioIt is the first publication of its kind to comprehensively cover architectural education in its current context as an international marketIt will feature the first invaluable listing of architectural schools worldwide: no dedicated listing currently exists in printed form or on the web, giving students a useful reference from which to start the decision making process
