Celebrate Irish Architecture with the RIAI

The RIAI works to inspire excellence in Architecture to deliver a sustainable future. Our annual RIAI Architecture Awards raise awareness of the value that architecture brings to society – from our homes to our workplaces, from our schools to our healthcare buildings, and at every scale in our villages, towns and cities. Quality architecture is inclusive and sustainable and makes a positive contribution to climate change action.

The RIAI Awards are Ireland’s leading Architecture Awards and offer great publicity opportunities for Members. Shortlisted entries are part of our exciting Public Choice Campaign, which reaches large audiences and inspires the public and clients about the value of quality architecture. The Winners and Shortlisted entries feature in our national and regional media campaigns and on all RIAI media platforms, as well as the RIAI Journal, Architecture Ireland. We provide Shortlisted entrants with a media toolkit including a special e-signature to support them in awards publicity.

The RIAI Awards are open to all RIAI Members and we welcome projects across all types and scales, and from a diverse range of practices. We also encourage regional diversity.
