Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Practice: Getting Paid
ContractsI’ll preface this conversation by saying that I’m not a lawyer, and the legal ramifications of your entering into a contract with someone else really demand that you seek legal counsel.A contract is designed to protect you and your client and spell out the legal terms and responsibilities of your relationship. In many locations a contract is a legal requirement for offering architectural services. Even if you practice in an area that doesn’t require one, it makes good business sense, and it forces you to evaluate the range of possibilities in the complex (and expensive) process of delivering of a custom home design to a client.Where should you start? A good place to begin is the AIA’s (American Institute of Architects’) website. It has a contract for just about any situation you can envision. I recommend signing up for (free) access to the AIA’s Small Project Contract Guide, which provides the information you’ll need to choose which contract is right for your situation. It also helps to read through the various sample contracts on the site to get an idea of what your contract should include. At a basic level, the contract will include the:Project descriptionArchitect’s responsibilities (including scope of services)Owner’s responsibilitiesCompensation termsTermination sectionCopyright notice regarding the drawings and digital files
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: Connecting Our Built and Unbuilt Worlds
I find that the most appealing architectural solutions leverage the latent, unappreciated and often mundane aspects of our world — the passage of time, the changing of seasons, the weather, capturing breezes, creating darkness and embracing light. This project resonates deeply on all of these accounts.Yet, it remains unbuilt.Perhaps it will remain just that, a collection of ideas in digital space, on paper and in the imagination. A dream. Or perhaps the inspiration and the ideas about place and creating deeper connections represented here can find life in your projects and your practice.More: Design Workshop: Materials That Tell a Story

It’s not unlike the experience of travel. When we’re removed from a known and comfortable environment, we’re more sensitive and open to new experiences, and those create powerful lasting memories.
