UCL Bartlett voted top for architecture - again

4 May 2006

Readers of 'Architects' Journal' have once again judged UCL Bartlett to be the top UK school of architecture.

In the annual AJ100 poll of the UK's 100 largest architectural practices, UCL Bartlett attracted a quarter of all votes cast, comfortably seeing off rivals Oxford Brookes (second place, 11% of the vote), Glasgow University (joint third, 9%), Sheffield University (joint third, 9%) and the Architectural Association (fifth, 8%).

It is the third consecutive year that UCL Bartlett has secured this honour, and sees the margin between the school and its opposition widen to 14%, up from 9% in 2005.

Professor Iain Borden, director of the school, said: "Sometimes it is worth blowing our own trumpet … and at other times we can let others do it for us. Congratulations to all students, graduates and staff - very well done indeed."
