There is no law restricting the practice of architecture or use of the title 'architect' in many countries, including Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden and parts of Switzerland; in the British Isles, there is freedom in the Bailiwick of Guernsey. The question has been asked whether buildings designed by architects not subject to any legislative restriction fall down faster.
