How to interview architects
I googled this question and "gardenweb", but none of the posts that seemed to be about this topic actually had what I was looking for. Apologies if I missed something and am asking people to reinvent the wheel.
Assume a property owner knows they need an architect, and has chosen three who appear to have the requisite experience. Of course a homeowner wants to see a portfolio, want to get references (hopefully a combo of recent projects and projects that are 10+ years old?), and wants to understand the services the architect will provide, how they are staffed, and how they prices these services.
What other tips or guidelines can you suggest for helping an owner choose wisely?
