Get rid of the Architects Registration Board


Absolutely. This may explain the absurd desire of some architects to put the initials ARB after their name, as thought they had any choice about registering. On the other hand, being a member of the RIBA, an entirely voluntary act, includes obligations over and above anything the ARB is responsible for. it also means you have passed the examinations laid down by the RIBA, which has been promoting architectural education since the mid-19th century, unlike the cuckoo ARB, whose endless increases in the outrageous tithe it extracts from all architects might be seen as an attempt to put the RIBA out of business.
