Where can I get a list of architects?

If you need an architect, contact a local chapter of the American Institute of Architects or the national organization itself at 1735 New York Avenue, N.W., Washington, DC 20006-5292; (800) AIA-3837; aia.org. Also contact friends or colleagues who have recently worked with an architect for referrals. Take the time to interview several before choosing an architect.
