Not illustrated. 1917 edition. Excerpt: ...involved, those who desired to prove their right to recognition though not prominent in the profession, and possibly others who believe that there is some commercial advantage in state registration. There are two provisions of the law which make examinations unnecessary if the Board is satisfied as to the competency of the applicant; while perhaps not in the order as indicated by the act, let us first consider the provision for registration when the applicant has been certified as an architect in another state or country where the standard of qualifications is the same, not lower than that of the state of New York. This compels the Board of Examiners to consider continually the standards required in other states or countries, that a comparison may be made before the acceptance of an application under this provision. It has the advantage, however, of requiring the Board to inform itself of the advances made in the requirements of similar Boards in other states or countries, and is therefore instructive and will lead eventually to a standardization 'of the minimum requirements of all Boards, with the result that the term "architect " will have a clear definition in law; this definition has long been needed in our state and is much needed elsewhere. The act also provides that the Board may accept as evidence certificates or diplomas in architecture from colleges having certain academic and technical courses that have been approved by the Board of Regents, provided that the applicant has had three years of practical training in the office of a reputable architect subsequent to his college course. This places in the Board of Regents the power to standardize the academic and technical training in architecture for all colleges more
