Comment on: Ministers set for talks on chief architect role
The RIBA are not engaging with the UK architects profession. Only 16.7% of RIBA members voted in the recent RIBA election. In polls between 72% and 84% of UK architects want 'Protection of Function of Architect' to protect the UK public and improve the built environment. Neither of the RIBA presidential candidates had 'Protection of Function of Architect' in their manifestos. The RIBA and UK government need to take note of the views of architects.
Until the UK Government 'Protect the Function of Architect' architects will continue to be undercut on fees by the unqualified and others! The public cannot expect a professional level of service on the current levels of architects fees. Why does UK Government allow unqualified people to design buildings putting the public at risk? UK Government need to follow Ireland and protect the British public.

When is the RIBA going to listen to UK architects and introduce 'Protection of Function of Architect' to protect the UK public?
Is the RIBA going to insist that UK architects are involved? Or is the RIBA going to sit back and watch another rash of banal, mundane, badly designed and poorly constructed developments be constructed by the developers of Britain.
