Architect awarded at least £400k from neighbours after failed legal spat


The ARB seems to be not that much more than a government fee collection agency that's achieved the magic status of having many architects believe they need to stick 'ARB' after their name. If they're qualified to practise as architects they don't, and arguably shouldn't. Some years after I'd decided to stop paying for the honour of being able to call myself an architect they issued me a formal warning for having been referred to as the architect in a building materials manufacturer's advertising, and it does seem to me that the ARB suffers from delusions of grandeur - I probably shouldn't subscribe to the AJ.
