RIAI Annual Review
The RIAI has published to-date two editions of its new Annual Review, Irish Architecture. The publication marks the far-reaching achievements of Irish architecture, both at home and abroad, over a two-year period in each volume.
The current Volume 2 (2011/12) features 144-pages of award-winning buildings alongside essays and reviews by leading cultural and architectural commentators. The book offers a fresh and uplifting look at contemporary Irish architecture. It also features a section on recent RIAI competitions, emerging practices and essays on the Irish architect Dr Ronnie Tallon, whose distinguished career was marked with a life-time achievement award, the Gandon Medal, from the RIAI.
Irish Architecture, Volume 1 (2010/11) features 28 landmark buildings and urban designs, which are featured in-depth, range from the civic scale of the Criminal Courts of Justice and Wexford Opera House to the private realm of stunning architect-designed houses and extensions.The increasing success of Irish architecture abroad is expressed in projects such as the multi-award winning Università Bocconi in Milan by Grafton Architects, which received the inaugural World Architecture Award, as well in an interview with the Irish Pritzer Prize winning architect Kevin Roche. The projects are placed in context through essays by some of Ireland’s leading architectural critics and commentators.
Irish Architecture, The RIAI Annual Review, is published by the RIAI and has been funded under the Government Policy on Architecture, 2009-2015.
