Human behaviour vs. star attitude
Interesting discussion about the quality on direction of teaching of certain univeristy professors at the ETH Zurich was found here (German only, unfortunately).
It kind of confirms what bothers me for quite some time now anyways (despite the fact that, as they state, Kollhoff is really, really horrible), the fact that the differenc ebetween a name and the quiality of the teaching is increasing. I heard some stories from Zaha at the Angewandte / Vienna, and even professors that consider themselves (and often only they do) as being some sort of a big shot have attitudes that are easily comparable wiht movie star behaviour.
Any stories from uni or the office? to add form your beloved Living in higher spheres architects?
