Architect Seán Fogarty, MRIAI to deliver the RIAI Tidy Towns Award for Enniscorthy

Published: Friday, March 01, 2019

In 2018 the RIAI introduced a new Tidy Towns Award to promote the skills of Architects in developing design led approaches to urban renewal and creating innovative ideas to urban design challenges in Irish towns and villages. The winners of the inaugural 2018 RIAI Tidy Towns Challenge Award are Enniscorthy Tidy Towns Committee.

Following an open call-out to all Members, the RIAI are delighted to announce that Seán Fogarty,  MRIAI, from Dermot Bannon Architects, has been appointed to work with Enniscorthy Tidy Towns Committee to develop an illustrated Framework Plan, which will address opportunities and challenges presented by proposed new flood relief scheme and a town by-pass. The selection of the architect was made by a sub-group of RIAI Urban Design Committee and the RIAI CEO.

The RIAI Tidy Towns Award aims to broaden debate and understanding of the importance of design led urban planning. On a practical level, the aim is to engage with local communities and provide support in the form of architectural expertise in relation to local built environment issues.
