There is no reason to have state architecture boards. Architecture is a self-regulating practice.
One practices architecture. If one fails to adequately maintain the practice, one gets sued, or fails to get repeat clients, the clients talk to one another at dinner parties, the failed building is seen by others…the practice self-regulates.
If the state architecture boards were disbanded today, no one would notice.
Buildings would still happen. Lawsuits would still happen.
Architecture boards serve no purpose.
