SECTION 7.3 Shall not, in any case, enter as competitor in any Architectural Competition when he/she has direct involvement in the formulation of the Program thereof, or when he/she has been engaged to act as Professional Adviser or Juror for such competition. Neither shall the Architect accept and act as professional adviser or juror in any architectural competition when he/she has had information or has reviewed or assisted in the preparation of such completion, accept employment as an Architect for that competition project, except as Consulting Architect. In section 7.3 of Resolution No. 03 Series of 2004, it says here that an architect cannot join as a competitor in any architectural competition if he has an involvement in doing the guidelines or program of the said competition. They can approach the architect but as a consultant architect only regarding the said competition. The reason for this is to be able to have a fair competition regarding the contestants because if an architect enters a design competition but he has a participating in doing the rules and regulation about the competition, there will be a biased. The integrity or the reputation of the competition will have a bad image to the public.

SECTION 7.4 Shall not, under any circumstances or through any means, solicit any project already known to him/her previously committed to another Architect, whether such a commitment is still in the process of negotiation or has already been definitely agreed upon. In section 7.4 of Resolution No. 04 Series of 2004 it says here that an architect should not steal or solicit or ask for any project which has already have a known previously committed architect even if that previous committed architect has still a negotiation to the project. The architect should step aside to the project if he already knew that there has already a committed architect for this will serve as a respect to his fellow architects. I think before entering any project, the architect should have a knowing or background regarding the project that he is going to enter so that there will be no trouble in the future that will happen.

CONCLUSION
An architect should not only have a good relation to his/her client, public, manufacturers and contractors but also to his/her colleagues and subordinates (his/her big and small brothers/sisters). This is because an architect cannot work alone. He/she should have a help from others for a project to become successful and also for the architecture industry to become wide and broad but with peace and harmony.

Introduction: This article gives a clear view of what an architect should be specially in dealing with himself, his profession, his/her business associates and the people working under his/her supervision guided by the Architectural competition Code, Standard of Professional Practice, and other Architects Organization.

Reaction: This article is an eye opener for me on what really is the meaning of my chosen profession and I do believed that if all students taking up architecture will put into their mind and heart what is being explained in this article,then, future problem can be avoided, and, instead, a healthy or friendly competition can be formed or molded. I consider this a very interesting and informative article that will guide architectural students as well as graduates or professionals on how to deal with their clients/customers with honesty and integrity and how to respect the right of the people around him. It also help us the right way on how we are going to practice our profession whether in public or private like always considering to have a written agreement in all the transactions that we are going to make whether it is for free or not and to respect what is being stated in this agreement and to always apply what is indicated in the Standard of Professional Practice specially the basic minimum fee. It also thought us the importance of preserving our architectural heritage on structure that is undergoing renovation by maintaining, preserving or taking care of it.

Conclusion: I, like the other students would finally say that we were very much enlightened and really guided by this write ups on how to become a professional architect someday with loyalty to our chosen vocation. You

will be on the right path if you will always put into your mind to be considerate with your contemporaries and the people working under you and to always abide by the rules stated in the Architects Standard of Professional Practice and Architectural Competition code. However, I would say that the contents of some of the sections in this articles are almost the same, but, still, it did not bores me and, instead, excite me more to stick into this course.

(It is a must for a professional/license architect to have a written agreement or to put in black and white all transaction/deal that he is going to get into. It is a must for her/him to have a written contract before he/she start the construction of the project, this way both of them (client/architect) will be committed/answerable with each other if ever failure of the project will occur in the future or while the project is on-going.)

He/she shall not use donation of professional services as a device for obtaining competitive advantage except for worthy civic or religious projects.

7.6 shall not undertake a commission for additions, rehabilitation, or remodeling of any erected structure undertaken previously by another Architect without duly notifying him of the contemplated

project even when the Client/Owner is no longer the same. When the greater mass, area, or design of the original structure is substantially maintained, the new Architect should limit his/her advertisement or claim only to the extent of the specific work he/she has done to the structure. Whenever the nature of work involved examples of our architectural heritage, the Architect must look at all possibilities of restoration. (Hindi dapat tumanggap ang isang arkitekto ng repair/renovation ng isang tapos ng gusali na ginawa ng ibang arkitekto ng hindi nya ipinaaalam ditto kahit na iba na ang nag mamay-ari dito. Kung pinananatili ang malaking bahagi ng dating gusali, nararapat lamang na sabihin ng bagong arkitekto ang hangganan o kabuuan ng kanyang ginawa sa gusali.
