To conflate two issues raised in your magazine recently, and in response to Paul Baxter's letter about high-quality design (AJ 15.12.05), good design is what good architects and other architectural practitioners do, whether they are chartered, registered, unregulated or unqualified, and sometimes supported by good planners.

It's the quality of the architecture rather than the qualification of the architect that counts.
