Architectural designers face the flak unfairly

  • Comment

I was reading your article 'ARB remit set to expand to protect 'duped' public' (AJ 2.10.03) with great interest.

The debate about who should be allowed to design buildings again seems to be in the public eye. All we seem to read about is how architects never fail and that 'architectural designers' are duping the public.

There are many people out there (such as myself ), who are partly qualified with many years of experience (18 years in my case) and are producing quality buildings and spaces for our clients. Yes, sometimes we screw up, yes, we are human, and yes, sometimes we make mistakes.

But are all architects perfect, do no architects make mistakes?

I agree the public does need protecting. I am not sure what the answer is, but I am sure that the answer is not by protection of the title 'architect'.
