ARB looks into case of the Country Life misattribution

  • Comment

Several architects have complained, at least one in writing, to the Architects Registration Board follow ing an ar t ic le in Count r y L i fe last week on England's 'rising talents', one of whom, Ben Pentreath, was described as an 'architect'. This was in spite of the fact that his education was listed as comprising a history of art degree followed by one year at the Prince of Wales's Institute. 'When I saw the piece it was a bit of a surprise to me, ' said Pentreath. 'What does a journalist call somebody like me? If I am at a dinner party I say I am an architect but that I am untrained.'

The ARB said it would be writing to Pentreath. He currently works for country-house designer Charles Morris - a chartered surveyor also described in Country Life as an architect.
