Fake architect fined following ARB probe

Comment

I am chartered through CIAT. We were approached from arb as our website was on a search site under the banner of 'architect'. This was not through ourselves. I asked Arb if there was a process to which we could use the term through an interview and portfolio process, there is not. Whilst I appreciate the need to protect the term, i believe its time for ARB to catch up with the real world, the path to 'architect' is archaic, the club is arrogant, and my fear is that it will be left behind. I also explained that we have plenty of clients who have used 'architects' and the level of professionalism was so bad we had to pick up the project. 'That's not my area of concern' was the response.
