Board of Architects

The Michigan Board of Architects was created under Article 20 of Public Act 299 of 1980, as amended, to regulate the practice of architecture. The practice of architecture is defined as "professional services, such as consultation, investigation, evaluation, planning, design, review of materials and completed phases of work in construction, alteration or repair in connection with a public or private structure, building, equipment, works or project, when the professional service requires the application of a principle of architecture or architectural design."

 

The Board works with the Department to oversee the practice of licensed architects in the State of Michigan.

The Board consists of 9 members: 5 architects, 1 professional engineer who is a member of the board of professional engineers, 1 professional surveyor who is a member of the board of professional surveyor, and 2 public members.
