The Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland (RIAI) have announced the winners of the 2022 RIAI Awards. The awards, given annually, acknowledge achievements in architecture and celebrate the quality of work carried out by RIAI members and the contribution registered architects make to the built environment.
The RIAI announced 18 Award Winners across 13 categories, including Adaptation & Re-Use, International, Cultural and Public Buildings, Learning Environments, Wellbeing, Public Spaces, Workplace and Living. This year’s shortlisted entrants were located the length and breadth of the country in Carlow, Cork, Donegal, Dublin, Wicklow, Kilkenny, Meath and Westmeath, as well as internationally in London and Liverpool, UK, and Chicago, USA.
Charlotte Sheridan, RIAI President said: “We are once again delighted with the standard, the variety and the diversity of work on display in this year’s awards and shortlisted works. The quality of the entrants was of the highest standard with the projects delivered across all categories exemplary in their areas. Irish architects are amongst the best in the world, helping to solve complex societal problems such as climate change and transforming our public spaces into wonderful places to work and live. I would like to particularly congratulate the winner of our Public Choice award O'Mahony Pike Architects and Mola Architecture for 10 - 12 Hanover Quay, Dublin Docklands.”
