Architecture & Public Affairs Committee
The Architecture and Public Affairs Committee (APA) is responsible for promoting and communicating the RIAI vision on Architecture and the built environment. The APA Committee is responsible for advocating and communicating, on behalf of members, the position and contribution of architects to society. The RIAI's audiences include members of the public, stakeholders in the built environment, government and the media.
The APA Committee is also responsible for promoting excellence in the practice of architecture. We do this through a wide range of initatives including architectural competitions, design reviews, awards, exhibitions, publications, lectures, conferences and by partaking in national programmes and initiatives such as the National Policy on Architecture.
If you are interested to find out more about the work of this committee, please see the Committee Updates (Member Dashboard) or contact Director of Architecture and Public Affairs, Sandra O'Connell.
