Exorbitance of the bad taste!

By now the chapter of plain copying the classical orders was considered and underline as untrue to design and its architectural meanings, but the fact that there are universities that sell and promote this proceedings is to me biological impossible to comprehend such thing. Here is the statement of the dean of the University of Notre Dame. Check the link below for samples of work!

"The School of Architecture at the University of Notre Dame offers two professional degree programs: a five-year Bachelor of Architecture degree and a two-year Master's of Architecture degree. The School emphasizes the principles of the traditional city and its architecture as a way to understand and solve the problems of contemporary life. It uses the past as a way of informing the future.
The liberal arts program all Notre Dame students explore in the first year forms the foundation for the principles of construction and their relationship to architectural form and the built environment. The third year, which the students spend entirely in Rome, explores traditional urbanism and how classical architecture facilitates a humane and sustainable way of life. By the fourth year, issues of regionalism and cross-cultural values are explored through the typological understanding of the city and its architecture developed during the previous three years. By the fifth year, the students have forged individual viewpoints about architecture and engage a diversity of issues that culminate in their spring thesis studio.
