Why on earth does the ARB continue to exist?


I very much enjoy and appreciate protection of title. And since architects are not about to be given protection of function as in many other places in the world, then it will have to suffice. Finch's case is poor; he hits at the overblown ARB management, their petty legal case, the minister's foolishness. OK let's change those. But not throw the baby out with the bathwater. The two things I would nominate to be put out of their misery are; the shambles which is the RIBA, having led the profession into the wasteland for decades, and Finch himself - too long in the tooth, no new ideas, overreaching control in both the AJ & AR, and total lack of rigour in his thought.
