Each year, the Architecture at the Edge festival explores and presents ideas on the relation between the architectural world and human life through a broad public programme of talks, tours, workshops, films, seminars, and exhibitions, in collaboration with various institutions and [inter]national partners. The festival was designed to allow the public an opportunity to discover the built environment from unexpected perspectives. It also allows an opportunity to interact with one another and to strengthen our sense of place and community.
Architecture at the Edge (AATE) is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the promotion of architecture as culture. Established in Galway in 2017, it invites everyone to explore and understand the value of a well-designed built environment. We aim to demonstrate how design enhances everyday life and to inspire new ways of thinking about architecture.
