Never heard of it, but I believe this. My school is barely 100 years old, but everything here in US is relatively new in comparison with the Old continent. I am curious to visit the Scandinavian countries. I haven't been in Northern Europe at all, just In the north part of Germany.
Cool! I have another full three years to go, and yes my school is considered the best in the area of Northern California - San Francisco. It is also the only professional degree acredited by the AIA. It is really hard, lots of sleepless nights... I am sure you know the drill. We are working on a project on a steep 1:16 site - you can check it out.. It is called Sutro Baths Ruins and it is on the end land zone in San Francisco. We are building a 14,000 sqft proposal for the Golden Gate Parks Concervancy. :)
