I suppose, Jacques, that your École Special is a far more culturally cosmopolitan architectural school than the elite Ivy League schools of architecture in the US Northeast. There are plenty of international visiting critics and lecturers at these schools, of course, but they tend to be quite homogenious and doctrinaire in their architectural culture (which largely is still the Modern orthodoxy). There is a strong Corb cult, which may seem at odds with the computer-High Tech faction in these schools, but as a visitor once commented, "You guys talk about your differences, but you're all the same to me." He came from a milieu probably more like yours, Jacques, which seems to be less canonical but more open and exploratory.
