you AIA, NCARB, supporters are such tools --- i was an economics major before architecture and i realize that there is such a thing as OVER REGULATION which prevents people from entering a profession (or being able to make a decent living at it). Also the fees and regulations on Architects is way out of proportion to their impact on public safety.
Are engineers subject to the same regulations, no. Are builders or General Contractors require to even be licensed or registered in many states? Big NO on that one. States wouldn't dare because they know that's where the big money guys are.
However, architects and their professional organizatrions are so wimpy that they agree to bend over and submit to these stupid regulations so they can point at them and feel justified that because they went through this pain, they are somehow more qualified and "excellent" than someone who was not.
Oh and let me point this out to you, CMYIYC Frank LLoyd Wright, Mies, Tadao Andao [sic] not registered architects with very little training in so call "established" architecture school.
OK now for DAGO --- yes i never have regreted my entering this profession, because i am good at what i do. However, if you do decide to pursue this as a profession expect a pay cut.
i was just pointing out the pitfalls of professional licasure which
they kind of don't spell out before you plunk down your hard earned money for this whole thing. And once you have received your licence -- avoid any association with the AIA -- it's money down the drain.
