Architecture Part 2 - Machester (MSA) or London Met (The Cass)? Watch

Report Thread starter 1 month ago
I am a Part 2 (Postgraduate) Architecture applicant. I've applied to a few places, and so far I've only got two offers Manchester School of Architecture (MSA) and London Metropolitan (The Cass). I know that MSA is one of the best schools for architecture according to the League tables, and the Cass is opposite (Although it's great for art for some reason). Anyway. I like REAL architecture, not conceptual, not philosophical... I like real buildings with a sense of space. Therefore places like UCL weren't even on the spectrum. I've applied to Bath (it's great for 'real' architecture) but I got rejected. At the Cass, I could be taught by great architects David Grandorge, Stephen Taylor, James Binning, Tony Fretton or Alex Ely. But when I look at the MSA website most of the tutors are ... 'nobody in terms of real great buildings', and most 'ateliers' are very conceptual. So I have no idea what to do. Did anyone study architecture at either place? What do you think of them?
