Why? No permits have been applied for and no construction documents have been made yet. The City has already said that you don't need to be an Architect to apply for a variance. When (and if) the time comes for them to apply for a building permit, the drawings will have to be stamped by a Architect registered with the Province of Manitoba. I would bet they are currently working with a local Architecture firm. So it is really a story about nothing.

It is wrong to claim to be an Architect if you are not but other than that, I believe that anyone can DESIGN anything. It just cant get built without a registered Architect and Engineer stamp.

If I recall, the Architect designing the Inuit Art Gallery addition is not registered in Manitoba. That is why they are working with a local firm - Cibinel. This is likely what is happening here.
