Italy vs. Barcelona

So when learning architecture, the two programs are so different. In Italy they are learning the old ways that the old architects learned. Columns, arcs, and so on, whereas here in Barcelona, we are learning contemporary architecture. I agree more with this type of learning because this is the wave of the future. Yes it is important to know where we came from but it is also important to understand how to make way for the future. I have had many conversations with the students in italy and it makes me ever more thankful that i am learning what i am learning here.
