The object of the Irish Architecture Awards is to communicate the range, variety and quality of the architect’s work in any one year. The importance of the Irish Architecture Awards is that immediate recognition if given to good architecture in the year of its completion.

In response to the range and quality of the Irish Architecture Awards in recent years, the RIAI has decided to make Eight Special Awards from the overall Awards in the following categories.

Best Building in the Landscape
Best Public Building
Best Commercial Building
Best Conservation Project – Sponsored by the Heritage Council, Ireland
Best Housing Project
Best Contribution to Urban Design
Best Accessible Project – Sponsored by the OPW
Most Sustainable Building Project – Sponsored by the Irish Department of Environment & Local Government

The Royal Institute of Architects in Ireland Award entries are assessed on a regional basis in three categories: category 1: under EUR300,000; category 2: between EUR300,000 and EUR3,000,000; category 3: over EUR3,000,000. Entries are selected for award or exhibition. This year, 177 projects were submitted, and from them 23 projects were selected for award, and a further 28 were selected for exhibition.An assessor from a particular region does not participate in the assessment of entries from that region.
