If I were you, I would not work that kind of Architect with that kind of
mentality. Designing illegal seismically unstable (UNSAFE) homes for
people, do not made it affordable. It simply translate into more profit
for the builders and therefore continuous job inflow for the unethical
designers.  A couple of holdowns here and there won't increase the cost
that much.

Good luck for your career!
