About

The Architectural Association of Ireland is a non-profit voluntary organisation, founded in 1896, with the aim of promoting greater discussion, dissemination and engagement in architecture and the built environment. Since its foundation, the AAI has developed a range of initiatives to encourage the amelioration of architectural culture in Ireland. 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.
