Architectural Education

    Article metrics


    THE subtitle of this book indicates its character with fair precision; it runs:—“A history of the past and some criticisms of the present system, upon which are founded some suggestions for the future, with particular reference to the position of the universities.” Mr. Travers has collected much information as to the courses of training for architects and the syllabuses of the examinations conducted by the Royal Institute of British Architects and many universities, and also offers useful suggestions for their improvement. Many of the schemes of work here tabulated appear to give little prominence to the training in the principles of science which are necessary for an architect to ensure successful work.
