I recently saw a segment on Good Morning America about a Japanese "Architect" that was awarded the design contract in Texas for a museum of fine art. But I wonder how he can do it legally?
He is a citizen of Japan, has no formal architectural training as he is self-taught, has no "apprenticeship" in either the U.S. or Japan, and is not a registered Architect in Japan or Texas or any other US State. He is not associated with any architectural firm in Texas or the U.S.
How can he do this without a registration as an Architect? If I were to do this as an unregistered person, I would be nailed to the cross with all the Architects cheering with the hamering of each nail!!!!
But then again, Frank Lloyd Wright wasn't a registered Architect either.
