  • Comment on: Brady defends RIBA Council Israeli motion

    John Kellett's comment 26-Mar-2014 1:15 pm

    I agree whole-heartedly with Stephen Games's comments. I doubt the vote reflects the opinion of architects and, more importantly, is not a matter the RIBA Council should be wasting time on, the profession is in complete disarray after 6 years of economic hell and an ineffective ARB is doing very little to uphold the law. Where does international politics feature in the Royal Charter?

  • Comment on: RIBA changes tack on ARB abolition

    John Kellett's comment 24-Mar-2014 1:27 pm

    The ARB does not currently protect the public from those illegally calling themselves 'architect' and other charlatans purporting to carry out our role ('architectural designers' and 'architectural consultants' etc.). There appears to be very few prosecutions of the many guilty persons and businesses purporting to be architects. How would a slimmed down register enforce compliance with the Law? It needs to be given teeth, together with protection of function for ALL qualified construction professionals

  • Comment on: Last chance to fill out the survey: Should the title of architect be protected?

    John Kellett's comment 24-Mar-2014 1:21 pm

    Not only should the title be protected, the function and role of architect should be protected to. Most of the rest of the developed World think it sensible to protect the public by such legislation, the Canadian system being of particular note. In fact, in the interests of public safety and protection from 'cowboys', the role of ALL construction professionals should be protected. For example there are no restrictions on who can call themselves a structural engineer, building services engineer, building surveyor or technologist. The only protection that the public has is 'Chartered' status but that is not backed by legislation as it should be.

  • Comment on: UN warns of UK housing regression

    John Kellett's comment 12-Sep-2013 1:14 pm

    The UN refers to Ms. Rolnik as an architect, but her name didn't feature in a quick search of Brazil's register of architects. That may be fault of the internet or the web browser I used but........

  • Comment on: Government should stop waffling and put space standards in the Regs

    John Kellett's comment 31-Aug-2013 12:44 pm

    Why doesn’t the AJ update and republish “Activities and Spaces”? It was written by John Noble, published in the magazine in 1982 and in book form a year later. I still find it useful, but after 30 years it is probably due for an update!
