AAI Awards 2020: Results+Exhibition*
*exhibition postponed – new date to be announced*
Congratulations to all of our 2020 AAI Award Winners, Special Mentions and repeat Downes Medalist, Grafton Architects for their impressive tour de force in Toulouse.
The purpose of the awards is to encourage higher standards of architecture throughout the country and to inform the public of emerging directions in contemporary architecture. With that in mind, the jury chose a selection of significant projects for awards; a university on a plateau in Paris, a travelling activation for Irish market towns, a domestic masterwork built around an Ash tree, an exemplary vernacular art space on an Aran Island, a piece of new urban fabric in Limerick and an affordable rapid-build social housing scheme in Dun Laoghaire. Special mentions were also given to a rural housing typology in Kerry, an enchanting suburban youth centre in Ballyfermot, a refined farmhouse refurbishment in Meath and an urban garden retreat in Ranelagh. Each making their own statement on the definition of quality in architecture.
Thanks to everyone who entered this year.
*The public exhibition and board collection is postponed until further notice.
