2015 RIAI Annual Conference
The RIAI Annual Conference is the largest annual gathering of architects and architectural technologists in Ireland and considered an important ‘think-in’ on topical built environment issues. This year we were joined at the RDS by a record 645 delegates over 2 days in a bespoke staging designed by Amanda Bone Architects and in association with Architecture Expo.
The conference theme – chosen by RIAI President, Robin Mandal – was Strength Utility Grace, reminding delegates that Vitruvius’ three essential architectural qualities possess an enduring relevance for today. Robin Mandal delivered his conference address against a backdrop of the RIAI’s new Digital Exhibition, Irish Architecture – A Sense of Place, saying: “We have made an architectural culture of excellence. For thousands of years we have been holding onto our craft of making.” The President also called on delegates for unity among the profession.
