Good Faith ( Bona Fide ) is defined in contract law as a leading presumption that all parties to a contract will deal with each other honestly and fairly. As such Good Faith is nor Good Will, but it is often seen that way.
This problem that Good Faith is part of negotiation instead of the base for negotiations has often found its way into all areas of architecture making it impossible to do proper architecture. As such it is time to insist on good faith instead of making it optionally. As such we architects need to boycott open dishonesty regardless from where it is coming and when it comes from vendors we clearly need to advise not to use that vendor or boycott the vendor until good faith is reestablished. The same also needs to be true in dealing with other architects that we treat everyone in a fair way.
Restoring good faith is important as otherwise each architect will get a another architect associated to look at what we are doing as that is the standard practice on all professions that operate outside of good faith and clearly do not want that.
