RIAI Research & Policy

The RIAI engages with government, the professions, industry, clients and the public to promote quality in architecture; to deliver quality and sustainability in the built environment; to enrich our distinctive culture and heritage; to contribute to the competitiveness of our economy; and to improve quality of life for the people of Ireland, today and for generations to come. 

The RIAI is committed in carrying out research on a wide range of topical issues relating to the built environment that affect Irish society. We do this through our member committees and by engaging with experts. This work, in turn, delivers new insights and policy for the benefit of everyone in society. Providing public benefit from our members’ expertise and knowledge is a key RIAI Strategic Objective.
