The paper and digital 2017 Guide to Europe’s top architecture/design schools and universities is free with December Domus. #domustop100schools
As every year, the December issue of Domus comes with the eagerly anticipated “Europe’s Top 100 Schools of Architecture and Design 2017” – a guide to the best 100 (out of 700 in all) schools of architecture and design in Europe.
An immense aid to all those keen to pursue these professions by enrolling on a degree or Master course, the guide is all in English and adopts several methodological criteria to select 50 schools of architecture and 50 of design, based on their reputation in the architect/designer community, their access to new technologies, their associations with other schools and the internship system, and an appraisal of the results delivered as seen a posteriori by alumni plus input from interviews with new graduates. It also lists details of the school, study course and the cost/timing of enrolment as well as useful contacts.
This edition includes a key new feature, having been expanded to include an initial selection of non-European schools, to which it devotes a targeted and reasoned introduction with ad hoc entries.
The 2017 guide confirms the significant quantitative and qualitative role played by Italian universities with architecture schools such as the Universities of Ferrara and Florence flanked by IUAV in Venice, Turin Polytechnic, Milan Polytechnic, the Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II and the Università degli Studi Roma Tre. The design section lists five schools in Milan among the top 50: Domus Academy, IED, Istituto Marangoni, SPD and Milan Polytechnic – plus, once again, the Libera Università di Bolzano, the Università La Sapienza in Rome as well as Turin Polytechnic and IUAV in Venice, joined by ISIA in Urbino.
