Wyoming Board of Architects and Landscape Architects
Q: Where can I get a Wyoming seal for my Architect or Landscape Architect license?
A. The specifications for seals can be found in Chapter 9 of the Rules and Regulations. The board cannot endorse a business to supply your seal, but when you order one, please be sure you have the appropriate license(s) for the seal you are using.
Can I use the term "architect" or "architecture"?
Wyoming Statute 33-4-101(a)(iii) defines the term "architect":
"Architect" means anyone licensed to practice architecture under this act;
Because "Architect" is defined as someone licensed by the Wyoming Board of Architects and Landscape Architects, only individuals licensed in Wyoming should use that term.
W.S. 33-4-113 states:
33-4-113. Use of title "architect" or "landscape architect".
No person shall use the title "architect" or any title, sign, card or device to indicate that the person is practicing architecture or is an architect unless the person is licensed as an architect under the provisions of this act. No person shall use the title "landscape architect" or any title, sign, or card to indicate such person is practicing landscape architecture, unless the person is licensed as a landscape architect under the provisions of this act. Nothing in this act shall be construed to permit a person licensed as a landscape architect to use the title "architect" or to practice architecture.
As W.S. 33-4-113 does state no person shall use the title "architect" or any title...to indicate the person is practicing architecture. Using the term "architecture" may indicate to consumers that an individual is licensed as an architect which may be misleading. It is recommended not to use that term for that reason.
Similar provisions exist regarding the terms "Landscape Architect" and "Landscape Architecture" and the guidance would be the same.
