The RIAI are inviting their members to submit projects for the RIAI Irish Architecture Awards 2017.
The purpose of the RIAI Irish Architecture Awards is to promote the quality of current work by RIAI Members at home and abroad and to create awareness of the contribution that architects make to society for everyone’s benefit.
Entry to the Awards is open from 15 March until 24 April and this year we have introduced a number of exciting new features:
New Regional Awards
Recognising the diversity and quality of our members’ work nationwide, we are introducing two new Regional Awards: House of the Year and Place of the Year. Awards will be made for projects in Connacht, Leinster, Munster and Ulster.
The category House of the Year includes new build houses, house extensions and both house and apartment remodelling.The category Place of the Year covers urban design and place making.
New RIAI Future Award
Awarded in association with the RIAI Journal Architecture Ireland, the new ‘RIAI Future Award’ recognises and awards new talent in architecture. It replaces the previous ‘Emerging Practice Award’. The ‘Future Award’ is for an individual within a 10-year timeframe of becoming a registered architect. Individuals can enter for the Award or be nominated by a Member. See categories for more information
Easier to Enter – One A1 Board for Stage 1
Due to the busy workload of our Members, we have simplified the entry process this year by requesting only A1 Boards and Architects Comments for Stage 1 of the submission process. If your project is shortlisted by the Jury (Stage 2), you will be asked to submit additional material online, including digital photographs and client’s comments.
Eligibility – Only projects by RIAI registered architects, which were certified and ‘practically complete’ in 2016 will be eligible.
There are two Sections to complete for entry into RIAI Awards 2017
• Complete entry form, and payment – online
• Delivery of A1 board
Submission Date: Monday 24 April 2017 @ 12 noon Delivery address: Claudia O’Dwyer, RIAI, 8 Merrion Square, Dublin 2
RIAI Awards Night and Summer Party – Following last year’s popular Awards Night, the 2017 Awards will be announced at the Mansion House, Dublin on Friday 23 June.
The RIAI Irish Architecture Awards are the main focus in the Institute’s objective to communicate to the public the variety and quality of contemporary Irish architecture.
