Blurred lines: clients need to know what a real architect is


If Kevin McCloud can get away with it, then why can't I? I'm a Chartered Architectural Technologist by the way and the quality of my work is on a par with an 'Architect'. There are good and bad Architects, just as there are good and bad Technicians. To slam technically qualified staff and label them as 'lesser beings' is not welcome in the architecture profession today. Most domestic scale projects do not require the services of an 'Architect' and its the Client's choice at the end of the day. If technicians/ designers are purporting to be Architects, they should be called out and fined. If public perception of the term 'Architect' is extended to anyone who designs (or draws) buildings, then where's the harm in that? The title 'Architect' has come to mean very little in the last decade or so, and this just goes to show those charged with representing and promoting the profession are not doing a very good job.
