About the AAI

The Architectural Association of Ireland is a non-profit voluntary organisation, founded in 1896 to promote and afford facilities for the study of Architecture and the Allied Sciences & Arts while providing a medium of friendly communication between the Members and others interested in the progress of Architecture.

Since its foundation, the AAI has developed a range of initiatives to encourage the amelioration of architectural culture in Ireland and promoting greater discussion, dissemination and engagement in architecture and the built environment. Today, regular activities include an annual public lecture series comprising national and international speakers; site visits to emerging projects across the country; the publication of Building Material, Ireland’s sole peer-reviewed architecture journal; and the delivery of a yearly awards scheme, exhibition and book.

All committee members give their time and energy to the AAI on a voluntary basis. New volunteers are integral to the sustainability and continued development of the organisation and are always welcome. If you are interested please email contact@architecturalassociation.ie
