Fighting bad design: NSW regulator fines architect $20,000 over apartments

  The NSW architectural regulator has fined a western Sydney architect almost $20,000 and barred him from practising for five years in the first step of a battle against substandard apartment buildings.  The NSW Architects Registration Board last week suspended Alex Sibir after finding he had signed off as the architect on projects for three different developers without having designed them and for breaching the state's Architects Act by failing to ensure the developers' contracts included necessary consumer safeguards.
