PORTLAND — The Portland Society of Architects will sponsor “10-Minute Architect,” a free design clinic, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Wednesday at Bard Coffee,185 Middle St.

The clinic is offered to homeowners and business owners who are considering when and how to use an architect for a project or want design guidance.

The Portland Society of Architects has held seven of these sessions. There will be more than two dozen Maine-based architects available for consultation at the design clinic.

The PSA is a relatively new organization, founded in 2006, with the mission of promoting design excellence in Greater Portland. Current members include architects, builders and engineers from more than 40 firms in and around Portland.

Pre-registration is encouraged, but walk-ins are welcome. To sign up and for more information, visit portlandarchitects.org.
