The practice of architecture necessitates taking risks.  A design error can have catastrophic safety and financial implications.   Business practices can lead to success or to the necessity of closing the firm’s doors.  This four-part series will explore the risks of practicing architecture and how to mitigate those risks without becoming incapacitated in an effort to be safe.  The series will include discussion of some important pitfalls which many architects do not fully understand and practice tips to help architects either avoid or mitigate them, plus a review of recent State of Texas legislative actions that have a significant impact on architectural practices.
